The data released last night by the Government showed significant falls in the numbers of deaths and the numbers of new cases. There will be some corrections today as reporting at the weekend is generally poor. However, the trend appears to be downwards across the country. This is good news indeed.

There are still regional variations, with the North East and North West still having high levels of infections. Even locally we are seeing significant differences between local authorities. If you look at the table below you'll see that Bedford has suffered over twice the level of infections as compared to Corby, when adjusted for population. The local impact of lockdown release will not yet be reflected in these figures. Keep your fingers crossed folks!

Last night the Parish Council agreed that their emergency provisions will be wound down from Sunday 14th June. We will not be abandoning the households who are shielding, but will be look for alternative ways to support them as our volunteers get back to their "new normal" lives.


55 deaths were reported by the Government yesterday taking us to 40,597 across the UK. The numbers of new daily infections decreased to 1,205. These are the lowest figures for a long time, but may reflect the weekend bias.


In Northamptonshire another 1 case was reported yesterday with the specimen dates being spread back over the last few days. The total number of cases is now 1,572.

1 new infection was reported in East Northamptonshire yesterday, the only one in the County!
