Nearly two weeks after the third coronavirus lockdown was imposed, the number of cases has continued to fall across Suffolk and north Essex, according to new data.
According to the latest Public Health England statistics, 3,215 new positive Covid-19 cases were recorded in Suffolk in the week up to January 12.
This equates to 15.2% of all cases recorded in the county during the pandemic.
The statistics compare the seven days to January 12 with the seven days to January 5.
Data for the most recent four days has been excluded, as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.
