The number of coronavirus cases in Oxford increased by 47 in the last 24 hours, official figures show.

A total of 16,300 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in Oxford when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on September 14 (Tuesday), up from 16,253 on Monday.

The rate of infection in Oxford now stands at 10,753 cases per 100,000 people, lower than the England average of 11,030.

Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 26,251 over the period, to 7,282,810.

However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded in the latest 24-hour period in Oxford.

The dashboard shows 143 people had died in the area by September 14 (Tuesday) – which was unchanged from Monday.

It means there have been no deaths in the past week, which is the same as the previous week.

They were among 17,836 deaths recorded across the South East.

The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Oxford.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.

The figures also show that more than half of people in Oxford have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The latest figures show 101,777 people had received both jabs by September 13 (Monday) – 56% of those aged 16 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.

Across England, 81% of people aged 16 and above had received a second dose of the jab.

Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
