Cumbria’s 45 new Covid cases and where people have tested positive

A further 45 new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed across Cumbria, according to Public Health England.

The latest data from PHE released today (June 12) shows that a third of these cases occurred in the South Lakeland borough; up from seven cases on Friday.

A further 10 cases were among residents living in the Barrow-in-Furness district; up from yesterday’s increase of four.

Six cases were confirmed in each of Carlisle, Copeland, and Eden.

Just two new infections were identified in Allerdale.

It comes after Colin Cox, Cumbria’s Director of Public Health, this week told residents to be cautious as “all the signs are now pointing in the wrong direction”.

“Unfortunately the pandemic is not over and without action we can reasonably expect infection to spread and increasing numbers of people to become ill,” Mr Cox said.

Cumbria has now seen 28,573 confirmed cases of coronavirus since the start of the pandemic.

In the UK, a further 7,738 cases were confirmed with the pandemic total now standing at 4,558,494.
