On the question about hospitalisations, these have been included in my post for a few weeks now.

I can't accurately explain the spike in Marple Bridge although I know some local people have theories. What is true across the country is that schools going back will have increased transmissons and co-incides with additional testing so more case are being found. That's not to say the stats locally are any less significant, as what I say above applies to virtually every part of the country.

The real thing to be interested in would be hospitalisation figures not positive tests, as that's more of an indicator of how it is working through a population if they aren't protected by natural immunity or reduced complications from the vaccine.

As you pointed out about Oldham and Bolton, it shouldnt necessarily reduce the positive tests if the kids are being tested, as it should still show in the results.

That would be unless they have had all current variants during the big spike and are now effectively immunised.

I've merged the two threads "Covid19 Information Updates" and "Huge increase in Corana virus cases in Marple and Mellor w/c 20 September 2021"

I'm sure malcolm will post the update later today.

I guess it could be secondary school related, as I presume they are testing again in schools?

Looking at the data for Stockport cases are highest in the 5-19 age brackets.  Which makes sense given how few in those groups have been vaccinated.  Cases are also high in the ages which will correspond to people being most likely to be parents. 
https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/cases?areaType=ltla&areaName=Stockport

Stockport has the highest rates in Greater Manchester right now.  This is interesting because as the borough's rates have often been on the low end in Greater Manchester.  Makes me wonder - and this is just speculation - if boroughs like Oldham and Bolton now have higher immunity rates caused by high cases in the past.  This could be the cause of higher rates in Marple as we haven't had it too bad.  Like I say, speculation.

I do wonder if the figures are actually correct. I don't mean I doubt the number of people with COVID,  but I wonder if the timing of reporting makes it look like a big jump, when in fact previous weeks may have been too low and a lot of cases from those weeks are only now being reported.

It could be of course that the figures are correct; I don't know.

The figures are updated daily.  There are sometimes slight delays in reporting data, such as around bank holidays  or because of reporting problems but you are looking at days not weeks.  And such problems covet large areas such as one that exists today which covered Northern Ireland.  The data is published around 4pm daily at https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/

Basically the data you see quoted is the true picture.  A big spike isn't under reporting.  It's exactly what it is.  A big spike.

Has no-one else noticed that there has been a huge increase in the number of Corona Virus cases in Marple and Mellor this week? Marple and Hawk Green has a case rate of 1,397 per 100,000. Marple Bridge and Mellor has a case rate of 1,116 per 100,000. The case rate for Edgeley is 216 per 100,000 and the rest of Stockport about 300. Source: Interactive map of cases Corona Virus in the UK -coronavirus.gov.uk Why has this not been highlighted??????

I wonder out of the 30 who are sadly in hospital, how many have been double jabbed. Is that statistic available ?

Just to add a bit of clarity - being vaccinated does NOT make you completely immune to coronavirus. What it does is drastically reduce the likelihood of you getting it in the first place, it reduces the chances of you passing it on to anyone else and it reduces the changes of you requiring hospital treatment if you you do succumb.

What this means if you should be vaccinated and you should encourage everyone else to get vaccinated. If people weren't getting vaccinated, the numbers in hospital would be far higher.

Amazon, I don't think that was rothers impled question, statistically with a respective 85.5 & 80.3% vaccination rate.

Its going to highly likely the 30 have been double jabbed and statistically on the older age of the spectrum.

Even with the jab you can still get it but with less likelihood of more serious complications.
