Coronavirus rates in Norfolk are at their lowest level in 127 days, according to NHS data.
There were 75.8 cases per 100,000 people in the week up to February 23 – the latest figures available – compared to 109.2 in the previous seven-day period.
That number is also lower than the wider figure for England, which currently stands at 107.8.
It comes as it was announced the R-rate in the East of England at the moment is somewhere between 0.6 and 0.8, meaning cases will continue to decrease in the region.
The last time Norfolk's number of cases per capita was so low was more than four months ago on October 20.
Great Yarmouth and Breckland are the only areas of the county where the case rates figure remains in three figures, but at 105.7 and 100 respectively it will only be a matter of days until these figures are also in double digits.
With 45.8 cases per 100,000 north Norfolk remains the area with the fewest cases per person in the county.
