Coronavirus (COVID-19) roundup: 21 December 2020

On the ONS roundup:

  • Data from the universities of Exeter and Loughborough showed sharp rises in COVID-19 cases among students following the start of the autumn term, but infection rates fell as term progressed.

  • COVID-19 spread among private student households before halls of residence, although the largest outbreaks were in halls.

  • In Exeter, cases were spread across the city between September and November (not confined to areas of student residences), but students made up the majority of recorded cases in the area at the start of term.
