Latest Somerset Covid-19 figures show fewer people infected – but three more deaths

Fewer people are infected with Covid-19 in Somerset.

But, sadly, three other people died after a recent positive test.

Figures provided by the Government as of 4pm today, Thursday February 2 for the previous 24 hours, show 1,6012 people across Somerset have tested positive for the virus.

That’s down 8.4% from the 1,753 reported 24 hours earlier.

This brings the total number of cases in Somerset to 212,545, just over twice the population of Bath.

The breakdown of daily infection numbers and cumulative total for the county’s six districts are as follows:

  • Bath and North East Somerset 290 (46,110)
  • Mendip 151 (24,427)
  • North Somerset 376 (49,651)
  • Sedgemoor 235 (28,052)
  • West Somerset and Taunton 282 (30,749)

There have been two deaths in the county within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test. This brings the total since March 2020 to 1,624.

There was a change in the numbers for individual districts due to a reassignment of one death, which does not increase the running total.

One was removed from Mendip’s total and one added to South Somerset’s figures, and two to Somerset West & Taunton’s. That’s a net gain of two.

  • Bath and North East Somerset 0 (289)
  • 0 (210)
  • North Somerset 0 (409)
  • Sedgemoor 0 (220)
  • West Somerset and Taunton 2 (265)
  • South Somerset 1 (234)
