These cases cover the weekend and today – and come as scientists warn the country could suffer a new wave thanks to two Omicron variants.


There were no new deaths in Bedford (645) – but one in Luton (713) and two in Central Bedfordshire (807).

There are currently 81 people being treated for Covid at Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Unfortunately, there is no further breakdown between the two hospitals – Bedford and Luton & Dunstable.
