The number of people testing positive for the coronavirus in the Anglia region has increased by more than 600 in one week, with 1,600 additional new cases recorded in the past seven days.

According to figures released by Public Health England on Saturday, 208 more cases of Covid-19 were reported within 24 hours in the Anglia region. As of Friday, 248 more positive tests were reported.

The total for the last seven days is 1,653 compared to 993 new cases the week before. That’s an increase of over 66% in one week.

Across the UK, 6,042 new cases were reported on Saturday and a week-over-week increase of 55%.

Weekly figures in the Anglia region are the highest since May. However, official figures at the height of the pandemic are likely underestimated compared to the actual figures, as testing was mostly limited to hospitals and other settings. Mass tests became available from mid-May.
