At yesterday's press briefing, the director of Public Health Dr Nicola Brink explained how the classification of 'unknown community source' cases could change as more data becomes available on their movement/contact history.

155 people are still awaiting results, and more than 39,000 samples have been tested.

As of 25 January, 30 cases were linked to eight education settings but it is not yet clear how many of the 22 new cases from the last day can be traced back to schools, colleges or early years providers.

The latest Covid figures follow an announcement from the States of Alderney president William Tate that there is 'significant risk' of infection in the island's community, although no known cases of the virus have been confirmed.
