Update on the pandemic

Here's the usual update as at Friday 3rd December. Last week’s figures in brackets.

The rate of infection in Stockport Borough is at 392.6 (387. 8 ) per 100,000, which is still below the national average of 447.2 (437.1). New cases are steady at 165 (162.6) per day. Stockport NHS hospitalisations in the week to 28th November are steady at 21 (21).

A reminder that Government advice has changed on the use of lateral flow tests, which are now commonly available locally for home testing and which people are being encouraged to use to manage periods of risk. Rules are changing regularly on overseas travel too so best to double check before travelling.

The number of people who have received a first dose of the vaccine is 230,145 (229,491 two weeks ago) which is 86.3% (86.2%) of the entire 18+ population has now reached 86.3% of the 18+ population. 212,227 (211,661) or 83.2% (83.1%) of the 18+ population have now received two doses. 93,034 (83,950) or 91.7% (89.6%) of the 70+ population have received a booster dose. Boosters are being offered in order of descending age. 
 
The area data is as follows, giving rates of infection per 100,000 over the last five weeks, latest last. To help get this in proportion, I am adding at the end total cases in 7 days to 29th November.

Marple Bridge and Mellor: 592.2/490.7/372.3/643.0/507.6 (30)
Marple and Hawk Green:   656.5/370.3/336.6/303.0/521.8 (31)
Marple and Rose Hill:   589.9/644.8/644.8/548.8/617.4 (45)
High Lane:   261.8/261.8/279.2/192.0/383.9 (22)
Romiley and Compstall: 466.4/492.3/531.2/492.3/738.4 (57)

Update on the pandemic

Here's the usual update as at Friday 26th November. Last week’s figures in brackets.

The rate of infection in Stockport Borough has risen back again this week and is now at 387.8 (301.6) per 100,000, which is still below the national average of 437.1 (418.3). New cases are also up at 162.6 (126) per day. Stockport NHS hospitalisations in the week to 21st November are down to 21 (36).

Government advice has changed on the use of lateral flow tests, which are now commonly available locally for home testing and which people are being encouraged to use to manage periods of risk.

I don’t have a figure for first dose vaccinations except that the figure last week (229,491 (227,995) which is 86.2% (86.1%) of the entire 18+ population) has now reached 86.3% of the 18+ population. 211,661 (211,163) or 83.1% (83.0%) of the 18+ population have now received two doses. 83,950 (71,472) residents have received a booster dose which includes 89.6% (85.5%) of the 70+ population. 
 
The area data is as follows, giving rates of infection per 100,000 over the last five weeks, latest last. I’ve revised these figures having done a check back over the last five weeks where some have been adjusted.

Marple Bridge and Mellor: 507.6/592.2/490.7/372.3/643.0
Marple and Hawk Green:   690.1/656.5/370.3/336.6/303.0
Marple and Rose Hill:   507.6/589.9/644.8/644.8/548.8
High Lane:   418.8/261.8/261.8/279.2/192.0
Romiley and Compstall:  595.9/466.4/492.3/531.2/492.3

Seeing as you ask so nicely, Melancholy, I will do my best  ::)

The New York Times is a useful source. Here is their current map of the infection:  https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/world/covid-cases.html?campaign_id=51&emc=edit_mbe_20211101&instance_id=44290&nl=morning-briefing%3A-europe-edition&regi_id=131392532&segment_id=73200&te=1&user_id=0567d0c3c99811ba543e2a321b874cd4

Here's a sample of current European infection rates per 100,000 population, as listed:

UK: 61
Germany:27
France: 8.9
Portugal 7.7
Italy: 7.3
Spain: 4.1.

The reasons their infection rates are generally lower than ours have been the subject of much analysis by all the epidemiologists and other pundits who ave emerged since Covid first hit us.  They don't all agree, of course, but the general view seems to be that the lower rates of infection in mainland Europe are because of a combination of factors:

The UK started vaccinating earlier than some other countries, and we therefore are seeing waning immunity
Many countries in mainland Europe require masks to be worn indoors and on public transport, but we don't
'Vaccine passports' are widely required for entry to bars and restaurants, theatres, concerts, and even (for example, in Italy) to go to work.
Other countries have been quicker to vaccinate teenagers than we have - this is a useful link about that:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-58516207.

I hope that information is helpful Melancholy.

“Sensible” means indoor masks, opening windows, vaccinating teenagers, and vaccine passports. Those are the measures in place in many countries in mainland Europe and they have got infection under much better control than we have.

Name the countries concerned, and show how their measures in themselves have directly led to fewer infections.

The reason we are suffering such high infection rates is simply because our dear leader is being held hostage by his libertarian right wing, who are opposed in principle to sensible precautions.

Yes well, "sensible" is a rather subjective word.

Hum, well seeing that I've had both jabs.
And whilst I can't prove it I believe I've had covid months before even the very 1St lockdown.

And yes, it was the worst flu I have had for atleast a couple of years I was back to normal after a week and I didn't need to go to Stepping Hill.

How about living life, if you're vulnerable have as many jabs as you want.

For the rest of the world we need to get back to living and stop discussing the infection rate like a plague.

Quite simply treat it as any flu season and use what remains of common sense.

If you want to wear a mask and hide away fine, just don't expect me to join you.
Ill come and visit you in steepin its not like flue have you had all jabs or are you one of the clever ones .
