No new coronavirus-related deaths or cases have been recorded in Bristol today (July 7).
According to Public Health England’s latest data, our city’s total number of positive lab test stands at 1,281.
And it’s been two weeks since a patient died at either Bristol’s hospital trusts after contracting Covid-19. The last death was on June 26 at University Hospitals Bristol & Weston NHS Trust.
That resulted in Bristol’s total almost doubling from 729 to 1,276.
And none of our city’s neighbouring districts recorded any new cases either today.
North Bristol Trust, which runs Southmead Hospital, has recorded 119 patient deaths since the start of the pandemic – the most recent of which was more than two weeks ago on June 22.
University Hospitals Bristol & Weston NHS Trust, which runs Bristol Royal Infirmary and Weston General, has reported 151.

Meanwhile, several pubs in England have had to close after customers tested positive for coronavirus just days after lockdown measures were eased.
This includes the Lighthouse Kitchen and Carvery in Burnham-on-Sea that has closed just 24 hours after reopening following one of its customers testing positive for coronavirus.
All of the pub’s staff have now been tested for the virus and a deep-clean has been conducted.
