UPDATED 31/05/2020 : COVID-19 news updates for High Wycombe and South Buckinghamshire – Monday 4th May 2020 to Sunday 31st May 2020

| May 4, 2020

News updates on COVID-19 in High Wycombe and South Buckinghamshire.

More recent news updates, after Sunday 31st May 2020, can be found at the link here.

The total number of Coronavirus cases recorded in Buckinghamshire is shown in the table below.

The data for the number of confirmed cases does not include ‘Pillar 2’ tests which are not published publicly by the government. Only Pillar 1 tests (those carried out in NHS laboratories) are shown in the data, the Pillar 2 tests (testing by commercial partners of the mass-testing programme) are not included as they are not publicly available. The actual numbers shown are therefore likely to be significantly lower than they actually are.

Not all those with the virus will have been tested so the actual figure may be higher.
