The University of Bath recorded 86 new and historical Covid-19 cases among staff and students on Monday and Tuesday this week.

The University has taken the decision to record cases daily, which can be viewed online.

The figures recorded for October 26th and 27th were 38 and 30, and one case among staff. However, figures for the 26th now include historical cases, which have only now been reported to Bath and North East Somerset Public Health.

According to the university, the old cases have been added to the new data for the sake of transparency.

The rolling seven-day average for the number of daily cases reported among students, which the university portal says only takes account of new daily cases, has risen over recent days and now sits at 28.29 cases per day.
