Cases of Covid-19 are rising in some parts of Surrey

Today, the county council warned residents should remain vigilant as they said the number of cases in Woking has risen in recent days.

Compared to the national average, Surrey’s number of Coronavirus infections is still relatively low, but the county’s director of public health Ruth Hutchinson warned against getting complacent.

“To date we have seen a fantastic response to this crisis, with the overwhelming majority of our residents adhering to our request to keep surrey safe and follow public health guidelines,” she said.
“But we need to be honest with the public and now need to call on their further support in reducing the spread of the virus.

“Compared to the national picture, Surrey still has relatively low numbers of Coronavirus infections. But we cannot be complacent. Everyone in Surrey has a role to play in slowing the spread – by getting tested if they have any symptoms, making sure they continue to socially distance, washing their hands and wearing face coverings.
“We are still a long way from a local lockdown, if we reign it in now, we can avoid this happening.”

It comes as more than 600 volunteers signed up for Coronavirus vaccine studies across Reigate and Banstead and Crawley.
