We no longer publish COVID-19 stats daily and instead publish weekly on a Tuesday.

Tuesday 29 November 2022 - We have 172 (known) active cases of COVID-19 in the Bailiwick. 123 new cases have been identified in the last week and 101 people have recovered. Of the 172 current active cases, 169 are in Guernsey, less than 5 are in Alderney and less than 5 are in Herm.

Vaccination status of active cases: of the 172 (known) active cases, 17 are not vaccinated, 26 are primary course only, 90 have had one booster and 39 have had two boosters.


There are fewer than five patients currently in hospital in the Bailiwick with a recent diagnosis of COVID-19.



Occasionally, the total number of known active cases may not increase or decrease in line with the reported positive cases and recoveries from the daily report. This is due to back-dated LFT cases. These are not included in the daily report but are back-dated in the total number of positive cases.

Negative Results – These figures are no longer being reported on as routine PCR testing has been withdrawn


We have recently changed the way we report COVID-19 deaths. Please see the definitions below.

* Awaiting results indicates people who have had a swab taken and are awaiting a result and does not include inbound travel swabs.

** Deaths due to COVID-19 are deaths with a confirmed underlying cause of COVID-19 following completion of clinical coding by the Office for National Statistics.

*** Additional deaths involving COVID-19 are deaths not yet coded where COVID-19 is mentioned as a cause anywhere on the death certificate. In most but not all instances these will be deaths among active COVID-19 cases and in most but not all cases these deaths will be found to have an underlying cause of COVID-19 when clinical coding has taken place.


The total number of positive cases may not always equal the total number of recovered cases plus the total number of deaths. This is because we are reporting all deaths considered to be from COVID-19, not just the deaths which were confirmed through testing to have COVID-19 (i.e. COVID-19 may feature on a death certificate, but a PCR test may not have taken place before the death occurred).
