Health / Mon 26th Jul 2021 pm31 05:36pm
WITH release from lockdown now passed, we have decided to bring back our daily Covid-19 report.
We are doing this because we want to give Harlow residents an accurate picture of where we are re Covid-19.
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 have a dedicated Covid-19 channel which has over 1200 stories.
Princess Alexandra Hospital
There have been two further deaths registered at PAH in Harlow.
The number of deaths is now at 546.
There are a reported 22-patients in the hospital.
There has been seven deaths in July
There were no deaths in June.
There were two deaths in May.
There were two deaths in April.
There were nine deaths in March.
There were 38 deaths in February.
That compares with 170 deaths in January.
Back on January 4th, there was 204 Covid in patients in over ten wards.
Local Authority Table
The number of cases is 428 over the seven days stretching from July 15th to July 21st. It was at 463 on Friday and then 449 on Sunday.
Harlow had been fluctuating between 4 and 20 from April 5th to the middle of June but then rose again and rise sharply but many will stress the hospitalisation figure, which remains relatively low.
Harlow is now 101st of 315 local authorities.
This compares with the dark day of January 9th, when Harlow had 1327 cases and sat third out of 315 local authorities.
These figures are from new positives between July 15th and July 21st.
Harlow is now at 428.
Every area in Harlow is registering cases.
Harlow has been divided into eleven areas of rough similar populations.
As you can see there are now 65 cases in Old Harlow and Newhall alone.
Under 18: 230
Total: 101, 207
Do we know how many tests are being carried out? Without knowing that it’s impossible to know if the case numbers are going down because there are fewer cases, or because there are fewer tests.
If there are 85, 000 people in Harlow and only 44,000 have had 1st and 2nd dose that's along way short of herd immunity. Vaccinations seem to be slowing right down is this a concern?!
