Confirmed number of cases

This means that the total number for Dorset now stands at 84. These figures are the confirmed number of cases from those who have been tested. Not all those with symptoms are currently being tested, so the number of actual cases is higher.

Staff in hospitals in Dorchester, Poole and Bournemouth are now working tirelessly to deal with increased admission numbers of people displaying coronavirus symptoms.
