The number of confirmed Covid-19 cases across Dorset has risen again.

On Friday (3 April) the total number of confirmed cases across the county reached 154.

80 are in the Dorset Council area, with 74 in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch.

The figure though could be far greater as some people who report symptoms have not been tested. These 'untested' and 'unconfirmed' cases are not included in the latest figures.
