The number of new cases of coronavirus in most districts of Hampshire is now down to single figures. Across Hampshire as a whole the number of new cases averaged 66 a day over the past week, compared to 115 the previous week and 298 during the first week of February.
In the districts which cover parts of the Candover Valley, Basingstoke and Deane had 77 new cases in the past week, just 11 a day compared to 219 and 31 a day in the first week of February. The numbers for East Hampshire were 31 and 4 a day, against 162 and 23 a day; and those for Winchester 157 and 22 a day in February compared to 25 and 4 a day in the last week.
Sadly, there were another 32 deaths in Hampshire in the last week of persons who died within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test. In Basingstoke and Deane there were four deaths, in East Hampshire five and two in Winchester.
On a more positive note, in the more local areas around the Candover Valley the rolling seven-day totals of cases have been falling steadily, although the reported numbers lag five days behind the daily numbers for the county and districts. At 1 March, Old Basing & the Candovers, Sutton Scotney & Micheldever and Overton & North Waltham had less than three cases each. But Alresford, which started the week with less than three cases, had five and a rate of 59 per 100,000 of population, Four Marks & Tisted, which also had less than three at the start of the week, ended with seven cases and a rate of 57 per 100,000; and Springvale & Itchen Abbas, which had reported less than three for the whole of the previous week, had five cases on 22 Feb which rose to 8 and a rate of 116 per 100,000 on 27 Feb, but has declined to four and rate of 58 on 1 March.
