Covid-19 cases in the South Hams are up to 15, growing from a low of six in March.

Between 25th April and 1st May, there were 15 laboratory-confirmed cases in the South Hams, up from eight between 18th and 24th April, and up from just six at the end of March. 

Devon County Council incumbent up for re-election, Roger Croad, posted the figures and said: "We are now three weeks into the easing of the lockdown, so this should be expected. We have done well here, but we are seeing small increases in minor outbreaks across a number of settings, including workplaces, schools, and care homes, so it really is important to use the mobile test units regularly. A week's supply can be obtained for home testing from the mobile unit."

The cases per 100,000 are now 17.2 in the South Hams. This is compared to 14.2 in Devon as a whole, 17.6 in Plymouth, 8.9 in Cornwall and 23.4 across England. 

Talking about vaccinations, Roger Croad said: "Up to 30th April, 686,712 or just about 86 per cent of Devon's adult population have now received the first dose, including 53,512 (71%) of the 45-49 age group. 274,135 second doses have been given since the Programme began in Devon (just about 34%). We are approaching one million vaccinations in Devon since the Programme began on the 8th December.

"The appointment system for second doses is complex, as each patient needs to receive the same vaccine type as the first, and there are limited days we can offer each vaccine, due to varying supplies each week.

"If people haven't heard about a second appointment after 12 weeks, call 01752 398836, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.."

Stay safe and wear a mask.
