Covid-19: Number of cases in Harlow heading towards 500

Covid-19 / Sun 24th Oct 2021 at 05:20pm

WE are giving you updates on the Covid-19 situation in Harlow as the needs arise.

We are doing this because we want to give Harlow residents an accurate picture of where we are re Covid-19.

It is by no mean perfect but it gives you, we believe, a fair picture of the situation.

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 has been one further death registered at PAH in Harlow.

The number of deaths is now 581.

There are a reported 21-patients in the hospital. 

This figure may well be the key one for the local authorities. It hasn’t gone above 20 for months but doesn’t mean that those who have contracted coronavirus may not have serious health conditions, both short and long term.

However, the fact that it has remained at that level may mean we will not return to lockdowns etc.

There have been 9 deaths in October.

There were 10 deaths in September.

There were 11 deaths in August.

There were 12 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 Details

The number of cases is 475 over the seven days stretching from October 13th to October 19th.

Over the last six weeks: 465, 449, 428, 383, 349, 354, 331, 300, 296, 270, 250, 236, 220, 255, 266, 257, 262, 264, 255, 251, 291, 296, 305, 311, 299, 344, 328, 305, 289, 282, 249, 262, 245, 246, 238, 218, 225, 242, 240, 229, 247, 263, 268, 296, 287, 276, 278, 256, 237, 227, 214, 199, 189, 184, 183, 182, 185, 178, 165, 178, 180, 201,204,215,209, 228, 246, 260, 234, 236, 233,249, 275, 291, 342, 344, 344, 349, 359, 396, 414 and 475.

Harlow had been fluctuating between 4 and 20 from April 5th to the middle of June but it now appears to be rising and rising.

Figures from other areas suggest a high number of cases amongst children.

You may note the high figure in Old Harlow and Newhall.

For quite a while, the hospitalisation figure was low and it has remained at between ten and twenty. It may be significant that it has suddenly crept over 20.

We may also have to consider the number of people attending Accident and Emergency.

This all compares with the dark day of January 9th, when Harlow had 1327 cases and sat third out of 315 local authorities.

However, you get the feeling we are far from out of the woods.

300 more than 2 weeks ago hospital rate is low so why the need to wear masks unless you are vulnerable we need to get back to normal
