Case numbers falling generally in Devon but highest among 20 to 39 year olds

Steve Brown, Director of Public Health Devon, focuses his message this week on Devon’s younger working age population – the 20 to 39 year olds.

COVID-19 cases generally are continuing to fall across Devon, but that fall has slowed and we are seeing a levelling off of cases.

Rates are currently highest among the 20 to 39 year old age group.

“We’re seeing the larger proportion of people testing positive in that younger working age group,” says Steve Brown.

“So I want to remind people not to be complacent. Not just when you’re in work, but also travelling to and from work.”

Listen to Steve Brown’s message this week.
