At Royal Papworth Hospital, there were 12 Covid patients on August 3, including 10 on ventilation.

The latest data shows Cambridgeshire, excluding Peterborough, has now recorded:

  • 38,593 confirmed cases since the pandemic began, as of August 6, 2021
  • 1,318 in the five days from August 2-6 according daily case data, which is subject to change
  • 813 deaths by August 6 within 28 days of a positive test, the last of which was on August 3

Vaccinations

Nearly four-fifths (79.3 per cent) of adults in Cambridgeshire have now had their first dose - 491,357 people - as of August 5. And nearly two-thirds (65.6 per cent) of over-18s - 406,446 people - have had both doses.

However, Cambridge continues to lag behind according to official figures, with only 63.6 per cent (99,829) of adults having had their first dose, and fewer than half (45.7 per cent, or 71,737 people) having had both. These figures may be slightly impacted by a high population estimate, given that Cambridge has a variable population.

Nationally, 78.2 per cent of adults in England have had one dose and 65 per cent have had two.
