About the data
A relatively small number of cases can make a large difference to rates and this needs to be considered when looking at weekly changes and comparisons with other areas. It's very difficult to say for certain what the reason for any increase might be. What the data does tell us, is that this is not over.
Please continue to be vigilant and cautious. We still have to wash our hands regularly with soap and water.
