Herefordshire’s overall COVID-19 infection rate continues to fall, that is despite an increase in cases in a couple of areas of the county.

In the seven days ending 9th May 2021, Herefordshire’s COVID-19 infection rate was 27.5 cases per 100,000 population, this is DOWN on the 33.7 cases per 100,000 population that was recorded in the seven days ending 2nd May. The reason for this is mainly due to the fact that the outbreak at a farm in Marden is now under control with very few new cases being recorded at this outbreak.

The areas that recorded the most cases in the seven day period ending 9th May were:

Lugwardine, Withington & Moreton on Lugg – 15 new cases

Leominster North – 7 new cases

Hereford South West – 7 new cases

Penyard, Llangarron & Goodrich – 10 new cases
