Although coronavirus levels are still decreasing across much of the UK, there are hotspots that buck the trend and the East Midlands has been revealed as one of these.

Dean Wallace, Derbyshire’s director of public health, said: “Following Government rules and guidelines is making a real difference and it’s so important we all carry on doing all we can.

“That means abiding by the national lockdown and following the basics that we are more than familiar with now – hands, face, space.

“I’d also encourage people to go and get tested at the community testing facilities that are now open around the county so that people who have the virus but are not showing any symptoms can isolate if they test positive, and help to stop the spread.”
