Covid-19 website figures (FOI)

Covid-19 website figures (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 13 November 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


ITV reported that: Jersey primary school class sent home after child tests positive for Covid-19. The authorities also said, "It is not yet clear how the child contracted Covid-19."

It was also reported that "Health officials have confirmed that they do not know how or when one person in Jersey contracted coronavirus"

Which column heading on the downloadable statistics spreadsheet (see below) do the figures appear for individuals who (1) are not part of travel statistics (2) have no vector of known contacts (as above) so would not appear to be from contact tracing?
