There are now 27 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Derbyshire, according to the latest figures.

There were 676 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed across the UK yesterday, Wednesday, March 18, bringing the total to 2,626.

With routine testing no longer taking place, as people with symptoms are told to self-isolate, the figures are only a guide and the true number is expected to be much higher but Public Health England continues to publish a daily regional breakdown.
