The number of people catching coronavirus in the Bristol area is continuing to decrease steadily – latest figures released by the Department of Health show.

The ‘case rate’ for all the areas around Bristol has now dropped to below 100 cases per 100,000 people for the first time – and it is only slightly above that figure in Bristol itself.

The overall trend continues to be downwards, with a third fewer people testing positive this week in Bristol compared to last week.

In total in Bristol itself, 47 people had positive covid test results recorded in the past 24 hours to 4pm on Thursday, February 25.

That compares with 447 in one day when covid-19 infections peaked in Bristol, on January 4, the day lockdown began, and 83 in one day this time last week.

Overall, the rolling average number of new cases found in Bristol in a week has declined from above 1,000 a week at the start of February to just over 500 a week up until last weekend.

It means Bristol’s average ‘case rate’, of the number of people testing positive in the last week, for every 100,000 people is now 110.7.

In South Gloucestershire, the case rate has dropped below 100 for the first time since the middle of October, and is now 99.6 cases per 100,000 people.

Only 24 people’s positive tests for covid-19 were recorded in South Gloucestershire in the past 24 hours, the lowest since the start of October.

In North Somerset, the case rate has been under 100 for much of February, and has now dropped to 78.6. A total of 16 people tested positive for covid in North Somerset on Thursday.

In Bath and North East Somerset, the case rate is even lower, at 53.8 cases per 100,000, and there were 10 positive covid cases recorded there in the past 24 hours.
