One of the most common questions I have been asked of late is how bad has Covid-19 been in Ludlow? How many people have died if it? For Ludlow, Covid-19 was cited eight times on death certificates over the four months to the end of June. There were four recorded Covid-19 related deaths in Ludlow in each of April and May, and none recorded in June. Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Herefordshire showed similar rates of citation of Covid-19 on death certificates. A record of Covid-19 on a death certificate does not mean the person died of it, only that they tested positive. Despite the fall in cases and deaths in June, Shropshire is not out of the pandemic yet. On Friday, three cases of Covid-19 were confirmed in a community in Craven Arms. As of Sunday, this has increased to 21 cases. Press release and details of the new testing centre in Craven Arms.
