COVID-19 case rates across Dorset have remained at similar levels this week, with a slight fall in the case rate for the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council area.
Case rates for both council areas are lower than the England average and around the same as the South West average. COVID-related hospital admissions and deaths continue to fall. Over 425,000 doses of the COVID vaccine have now been given across the county.
