East  Suffolk has been placed on an East of England watchlist by Public Health England, due to a continuing rise of Covid-19 cases.

Areas which are seeing a rise of cases include Lowestoft, Beccles and Bungay.

Latest data for cases of the virus, show that the rate per 100,000 people is now just over 30 – with a cumulative total of 1073.

The rise in cases comes from across the community and is not specifically linked to a certain group of people, or type of workplace.

East Suffolk’s figures are still below the average for England, where there are 108 cases in 100,000.
