The Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust reports there were 11 patients in hospital with coronavirus on May 10, none of them was on a mechanical ventilator,

While the number of tests carried out in the district has been falling in recent weeks since the lifting of restrictions in April, they have increased slightly.

Between May 9 and 15 there have been 6,419 tests. This shows an increase of 0.8% compared to the previous seven days.
