Coronavirus: Delayed Test Results Sees Drop In Active Cases

Jersey has seen its lowest number of new daily coronavirus cases in nearly a month, according to Government figures.

Just 22 new active cases have been identified over the last 24 hours, and 55 people who had COVID-19 have recovered.

It brings the total number of active cases in the island down to 914 and the number of people identified as direct contacts down to 4,134.

30 people are in hospital with COVID-19, down from 33 on Friday. There are no new deaths reported.

The 14-day rate of cases per 100,000 has also dropped to 861.8.

The drop in active cases could be down to fewer PCR swab tests being processed.

784 test results are still outstanding, which the government says is down to a technical issue overnight which has now been resolved.
