Coronavirus: Confirmed Cases Exceeds 200

213 people have now been diagnosed with coronavirus in Jersey.

That's an increase of 15 on the previous update given on Friday evening.

Another 67 people have tested negative (total of 1,560), while 36 results are pending.

There was no announcement on case numbers yesterday after 'technical issues with the production of test figures'.

On-island testing for coronavirus started last Wednesday.

The number of people who've recovered after contracting Covid-19 are due to start being released from next week.

 Coronavirus Advice

If you think you might have the virus, you should self-isolate and call the Health Department's coronavirus helpline:

01534 445566

It's open every day between 8am and 8pm. Calls outside these times, or when the line is engaged, won't be answered straight away - but we're told to leave a message and Health officials will call you back.

Please don't visit your GP or the Emergency Department at the General Hospital if you think you have the virus.

Coronavirus symptoms are similar to that of the flu - a combination of a cough, fever and aching muscles. If you've had any symptoms, even if you haven't travelled abroad, we're being told to self-isolate until they clear up (for a minimum of seven days).

Anyone who has come into contact with a person confirmed to have the coronavirus should stay in self-isolation for at least 14 days.

All the latest information can be found on Gov.je.
