As of 22 October, Torbay had a COVID case rate of 113.0 per 100,000 population (154 cases) for the week ended 19 October. This is substantially larger than the case rates of 79.3 on 12 October and 57.2 on 4 October. It should be noted that given the relatively small numbers involved, a couple of outbreaks can have a dramatic effect on the case rate.

There are a wide range of settings involved including schools, care homes, hotel/entertainment venues, pubs and restaurants. There is not a particular type of setting that dominates the cases.

Since 1 August, the largest proportion of cases have occurred in those aged 16 to 39. During August and September, approximately 50% of cases related to that age group. During October, this proportion has fallen to 39% and during the last seven days it has fallen to 26% of cases.

We are not currently at a stage in which we need to escalate the level of our resources.
