COVID-19 case numbers rising


Public Health update on COVID-19 in Dorset

After a short period of seeing case rates fall in our local area, they have begun to increase again over the past week. At 510.1 per 100,000, the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council case rate is above the England average of 283.7 and the South West average of 307.2. Dorset Council’s case rate is also rising and is now 282.0 per 100,000. The number of people in hospital in Dorset with COVID-19 continues to rise slowly, and sadly we are seeing a small number of COVID-related deaths.
