Here are the latest figures locally.

This comes after an urgent appeal was launched for people with suitable accommodation to donate their properties in order to house emergency workers during the pandemic.

In nearby Slough, there are now a total of 115 confirmed cases.

It comes amid claims from the GMB union that health bosses running Slough’s Wexham Park Hospital are putting frontline staff “at risk” with a lack of suitable masks, soap and hand sanitiser available to protect staff.

It has also been revealed that Slough currently has the fourth highest coronavirus infection rate in England.

Further afield, in Windsor and Maidenhead there are a total of 75 confirmed cases, in Oxfordshire there are 234 and in Hertfordshire there are 480.
