Great Yarmouth's Covid cases have more than trebled in the past seven days, Public Health England's latest figures suggest.
PHE reported that a total of 243 people had a confirmed positive Covid test result between July 5 and July 11.
This shows an increase of 333.9pc compared to the previous seven days.
Despite the rise in positive tests, only three people have been admitted to James Paget University Hospital (JPUH) between June 28 and July 6.
One person with coronavirus went into hospital on July 4.
