Covid Data: 4,776 cases removed – see how this affects your Nottinghamshire area

Public Health England has removed 4,776 cases from coronavirus reporting figures.

PHE said:

‘The introduction of a new system disrupted the removal of cases where a positive rapid lateral flow test was followed by all negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests taken within 3 days.

‘These 4,776 cases have now been removed. Newly-reported cases for the UK and England were unaffected.

‘Historical published date totals have not been changed.

‘Newly-reported cases at regional and local authority level within England are calculated as the daily change in the total number of cases.

‘This means that for 18 May 2021, these show significantly lower numbers or zero, and do not reflect the actual number of new cases reported on that date.’

For updates on The Wire today, therefore, we’ve made the total for the local authority accurate as per PHE numbers today. See below.
