Wednesday 1 December 2021 - We have 842 (known) active cases of COVID-19 in the Bailiwick as 85 new cases have been identified and 93 people have recovered. Of the 842 current active cases, 838 are in Guernsey & Herm and 1 is in Sark. The attribution for three cases remains outstanding.

Of the 85 new cases, 26 are symptomatic community cases, 4 are through community surveillance, 48 are contacts of a known case and 4 are travel related. The attribution for three cases remains outstanding.

Since the end of the second wave there have been 3,341 cases. Of these cases, 1,266 were unvaccinated, 208 were partially vaccinated and 1,862 were fully vaccinated. The Vaccination status of five cases remains outstanding.

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).
