'We need to keep playing our part' says Public Health Director

Torbay's Director of Public Health Caroline Dimond

Last night the 'R' rate in the South West was confirmed to be below one - but people are still urged to be vigilant.

The Health Secretary Matt Hancock's daily update revealed the rate of transmission had fallen in all parts of the country  - after previously reaching one in the South West a few days ago.

The latest figures show there were 55 deaths recorded, the lowest since March 21, before the lockdown started.

Torbay's Director of Public Health Caroline Dimond says it's good news and rates of infection are still lower in parts of the Westcountry than other areas of the UK.
