The Weekly Covid-19 Report for Harlow

Covid-19 / Tue 4th May 2021 at 05:28pm


WE began the year, with three separate reports every day. By early January, there was 1327 cases in a single day.

By early March, as there were encouraging signs, we condensed it into one daily report.

The report covers UK figures; Princess Alexandra Hospital figures; the Local Authority table which gives Harlow’s position out of 315 local authorities, as well as rate per thousand and the number of cases.

We also have a breakdown of eleven areas of Harlow. Finally, we have a table of the vaccination numbers for Harlow.

As things have improved further, we have now decided to do a weekly report only. This will be published on a Tuesday.

We have a dedicated Covid-19 channel which has over 1200 stories.
