Update on the pandemic

Here’s the usual weekly update as at Friday 2nd July. Last Friday’s figures in brackets. 
The rate of infection in Stockport Borough has increased along with UK trends and remains high at 299.2 per 100,000 (219.4) and is still well above the national average of 181.1 (114.0). Apologies, I don’t have a figure for new cases (92 per day last week) but I have found a figure for hospitalisations in Stockport NHS in the week to 27th June which was 11. The Delta variant accounts for 99% of cases in the region.

Vaccinations of a first dose have reached 207,714 (204,480) which includes 3,234 (5,552) in the previous week and we are now at 81.9 (78.6%) of the entire 18+ population. 61.3% (59.9%) of the 18+ population have now received two doses. Last week, 1,390 (5,144) second doses were administered.  Vaccinations are open to anyone aged over 18 (at 1st July). Pop up clinics will be continuing until the end of August and are posted on the council web site. A mobile bus is due in the area on 8th and 9th July but locations not yet available.

Update on the pandemic
Here’s the usual weekly update as at Friday 25th June. Last Friday’s figures in brackets.
 
The rate of infection in Stockport Borough remains high at 219.4 per 100,000 (203.1) and remains well above the national average of 114.0 (77.4). New cases are at 92 per day (85). The Delta variant accounts for 99% of cases in the region.

Vaccinations of a first dose have reached 204,480 (197,821) which includes 5,552 (6,574) in the previous week and we are now at 78.6% (75.4%) of the entire 18+ population. 59.9% (58.1%) of the 18+ population have now received two doses. Last week, 5,144 (6,873) second doses were administered.  Vaccinations are open to anyone aged over 18 (at 1st July). Pop up clinics will be continuing until the end of August.

Last week I gave examples of very local information available on the Government web site, but slightly different timings to the above. To give you some trends, in the seven days to 21st June, in the area defined as Marple Bridge and Mellor the rate was 237.4 (220.4) per 100,000; in Marple and Hawk Green 67.2 (167.9) ; in Marple and Rose Hill 124.1 (179.3) and in High Lane 172.6 (138.1).Cases are dropping except in High Lane. For example total cases are 14 in Marple Bridge and Mellor, 4 in Marple and Hawk Green, 9 in Marple and Rose Hill, 10 in High Lane. I’ve been asked for hospitalisation data but I don’t have access to that sorry.

Although restrictions weren’t fully lifted on 21st June, some rules were relaxed. This can be found on the Government web site. Changes affect weddings and civil partnership ceremonies, funerals and linked commemorative events, care home visits and domestic residential visits for children. There are advisory rules for high infection areas which include Stockport.

The rate of infection in Stockport Borough remains high at 203.1 per 100,000 (230.4) and remains well above the national average of 77.4 (64.7). New cases are at 85 per day (96.0).

Vaccinations are now open to anyone aged over 18 (at 1st July). Pop up clinics are flagged on the Stockport Council Web site and their social media.

The Delta variant accounts for 98% of cases in the region. There is very local information available on the Government web site, but slightly different timings to the above. This is on the “interactive map”. For example in the seven days to 13th June, in the area defined as Marple Bridge and Mellor the rate was 220.4 per 100,000; in Marple and Hawk Green 167.9; in Marple and Rose Hill 179.3 and in High Lane 138.1 (coronavirus.data.gov.uk) .

Update on the pandemic

Here’s the usual weekly update as at Friday 11th June. Last Friday’s figures in brackets. Vaccination data relates to the first dose unless stated.

As reported in the news, rates across the country have considerably worsened ahead of the announcement tomorrow (Monday). This is the situation in Stockport Borough.
 
The rate of infection in Stockport Borough has increased significantly to 230.4 per 100,000 (141.4) which remains well above the national average of 64.7 (35.0). New cases are also significantly up at 96 per day (59.0). Stockport’s case rate is the 6th highest in the country. The Stockport Director of Public Health says the rise is most in unvaccinated groups.

Vaccinations of a first dose have reached 191,247 (185,195) and we are now at 75.4% (73.6%) of the entire 18+ population. 54.6% (52.2%) of the 18+ population have now received two doses. Last week, 7,039 (13,763) second doses were administered.  Vaccinations are now open to anyone aged over 25 (at 1st July). Apart from new vaccination centres reported last week, pop up clinics are being held and advertised locally.

Stockport is designated as one of the “Enhanced Support Areas” in the light of rising case rates of the Delta variant which accounts for 95% of our cases and is 50% more transmissible than previous variants.

Worth sharing - there's going to be a popup vaccination centre at Mersey Square, Stockport on Friday and Saturday for first doses.  Open to anyone 36 years of age and over, health and social care workers, unpaid carers and anyone over 30 with underlying health conditions.  No appointment needed - just turn up. 
Details at https://www.stockport.gov.uk/news/stockport-town-centre-walkin-vaccination-site

If you are eligible and have yet to have your first dose, why not pop along!  You can also book a vaccination at Brookdale Club and Theatre, Bramhall, at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination

Our local GPs are apparently not doing under 50s (besides those with medical conditions) so if you're under 50, this is a good opportunity to it done with somewhere with good transport links.

The NHS website says 2:30, but it may be that there's an error in that.  Or that they just open up earlier.

Incidentally I went to pick up some lateral flow tests the other day and there are signs up saying collection of from 2:30.
