The number of cases of COVID (see Figure 1) are still moving in the right direction. However, whilst this is good news from where we have been, COVID-19 is still circulating in the community and it remains important to be vigilant. We still have a way to go before numbers are at the low levels seen in the summer. We are currently averaging about 40 cases a day, but back in the summer we had days with zero cases, so there is a lot of progress we still need to make. As we saw over December and January, cases can escalate rapidly. Cases continue to be concentrated in working age adults (see Figure 2).
