CORNWALL Council is warning residents to take extra precautions to stop the spread of Covid-19 as case rates in the county hit an all-time high.

This month cases have hit a record high of 1,322 per 100,000 — a rate which also makes Cornwall the second highest area for cases in England.

Cornwall Council’s assistant director of public health, Dr Ruth Goldstein, has urged people to follow the original covid guidance in an attempt to bring Cornwall’s case numbers down and protect the NHS.

The rise in infections is due to the new and highly infectious sub-variant of Omicron and the lifting of all previous restrictions.
