Meanwhile, the number of new cases recorded in the Bristol area today is less than half the number found two weeks ago, according to official figures.

A total of 422 cases of the virus were recorded across the Bristol area today (August 3), which is considerably lower than the 1,063 cases found on July 19.

The huge drop in confirmed cases follows a similar trend across the country, with case numbers falling around the UK.

While the drop in case numbers seems good, some experts have warned that the drop in confirmed cases could be caused by people deciding not to take coronavirus tests to avoid having to self-isolate.

Of the new cases recorded today, 210 of them were discovered in Bristol, bringing the city’s total number of confirmed cases since the start of the pandemic to 47,068.

Meanwhile, 104 cases were recorded in South Gloucestershire, bringing its total to 23,517 and another 62 were found in Bath and North East Somerset, bringing the total to 13,093.

A further 46 cases were discovered in North Somerset, bringing the total to 14,774.

The update means that there have now been 98,452 confirmed cases of the virus in the Bristol area since the start of the pandemic.

As of 9am on Tuesday, there had been a further 21,691 lab-confirmed Covid-19 cases in the UK, the Government said.

A further 138 people had died within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19 as of Tuesday, a significant rise from yesterday, bringing the UK total to 129,881.

How many people have been vaccinated?

Some 38,590,332 were second doses, an increase of 126,307.
