Cumbria’s latest Covid cases as one area hits milestone mark

A further three coronavirus cases have been recorded across Cumbria in the latest 24-hour period.

However a recording error by Public Health England means that the county’s tally actually only increases by one.

One positive test was recorded in each of Allerdale, Copeland and Eden since yesterday.

However Barrow’s total since the start of the pandemic has been revised down by two.

The PHE data released this evening (May 31) also shows that Eden has now hit the 3,000 cases milestone for the first time.

Cumbria has now accumulated a total of 28,328 cases since the pandemic began more than 14 months. The large majority of these, however, are no longer active.

The Government also that, as of 9am on Monday, there had been a further 3,383 lab-confirmed cases in the UK.

One further person has died within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19 as of Monday, according to the Government, bringing the UK total to 127,782.
