Coronavirus cases continue to be recorded in Bracknell and Wokingham as concern over an Indian variant of the virus grows.

India has become one of the worst hit countries in the world, with 343,144 new cases recorded on Wednesday, May 13, according to official figures.

Cases of coronavirus across the UK have increased by 1,768, to a total of 16,079 over the past seven days according to the latest data.

If this trend continues, there are fears that the Government’s four step roadmap out of the lockdown will have to be re-assessed.

We are currently in phase two, with the most recent lifting of restrictions happening on Monday, April 12. This allowed non-essential shops to open and outdoor venues such as pub gardens to open.

The Government says it is on track for step three on Monday, May 17, which will involve re-opening indoor venues with the rule of six applied. It is hoped that step four, which involves a complete end to the lockdown, will be achieved on Monday, June 21.

Government data breaks down new cases into hyperlocal areas known as Middle layer Super Output Areas (MSOAs), which can be observed on an interactive map.
