The number of recorded coronavirus cases in Oxfordshire increased by 133 over the weekend, official figures show.

Public Health England figures show that 34,858 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 by 9am on Monday (June 14) in Oxfordshire, up from 34,725 the same time on Friday.

The health body recently changed the way it records the figures.

Cases identified through a positive lateral flow test – those which can deliver results within half an hour – will no longer be counted if the person then takes a PCR test, which is sent to a lab to be checked, and receives a negative result within three days.

These cases are now being removed daily.

The rate of infection in Oxfordshire now stands at 5,040 cases per 100,000 people, far lower than the England average of 7,085.

Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 22,476 over the period, to 4,573,419.

Oxfordshire's cases were among the 552,673 recorded across the South East, a figure which rose by 1,763 over the period.

Cumulative case counts include patients who are currently unwell, have recovered and those that have died.
