In the seven days leading up to September 25, there were a total of 67 confirmed Covid-19 cases in Oxford.

The university has now said that 47 of those were students. 

At the end of September, an outbreak of 30 cases at Oxford Brookes could be traced back to wild student parties. 

A shocking video emerged of hundreds of students completely ignoring social distancing rules in a huge party at halls.
