A further 90 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus across Bristol over the past 24 hours.
The Government’s latest figures show infections across our city are now hitting similar daily tallies to those confirmed in February at the end of the last peak.
On Sunday, 96 new cases were confirmed and 73 on Saturday.
The last time our city surpassed 90 cases a day was on February 12 when 106 positive tests were returned.
Bath and North East Somerset also reported a rise in its cases today, with 33.
This compares to 28 on Sunday, and 18 on Saturday.
Last month, on May 14, Bristol reported 34 cases while BANES had three.
The figures come on the same day that Boris Johnson confirmed that further easing of lockdown restrictions would be postponed amid concern around the Delta variant of Covid-19.
The Prime Minister said the Government had faced a “very difficult choice” but that “now is the time to ease off the accelerator”.
