Two new positive coronavirus cases have been confirmed in the Maldon district.

The new infections, recorded yesterday (September 10) follow four consecutive days where no new cases were recorded.

The figures are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

The total number of infections in Maldon now stands at 156.

A new map has been released letting residents track coronavirus by postcode.

It is hoped the new tool will help local authorities take fast and decisive action is there is an outbreak in their area.
