Health / Sun 2nd Jan 2022 pm31 05:10pm

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 have been no further deaths registered at PAH in Harlow.

The number of deaths is 610.

For the record, Covid-19 is the underlying cause of death in around 92% of deaths where it was mentioned in the death certificate.

There are a reported 26-patients in the hospital. That figure is starting to creep up. 

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. Who knows?

January

1625, 1779

Harlow had been fluctuating between 4 and 20 from April 5th to the middle of June but its path since September can be documented above.

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

For quite a while, the hospitalisation figure was low and it has remained at between ten and twenty. It is an important figure to keep an eye on.

We may also have to consider the number of people attending Accident and Emergency which appears to be averaging at 300 people a day.

This all compares with the dark day of January 9th, when Harlow had 1327 cases but 204 in hospital and sat third out of 315 local authorities.

3 Comments for Covid-19: Harlow has fourth highest rate in country as number of cases approaches 1800:

These very high case rates are possibly because the take-up for all doses of vaccinations as seen above are well below the national average. For whatever reason, there are people in our town who apparently do not think it worthwhile to be vaccinated for their own health but more importantly, the health of those they may come into contact with. It is highly likely that Harlow could well be the worst in the UK for the 7 day infection rate within a few days. This upward trend has been evident on these pages for the last 3 weeks or so. YH should be highlighting these facts instead of publishing the rather bland and very repetitive commentary.

I’m unsure why people keep referring to others being vaccinated to protect others when vaccinated carry as much virus as an unvaccinated person and they can also spread it. It’s more to do with peoples social activity why the case rates are so high. Jabbed or not.. you can still catch covid. This is about case numbers which include vaccinated and unvaccinated.

The percentage uptake figures of those eligible for vaccinations are lower in Harlow than the national average But the good thing is that so far 63,738 Harlow people have had their first dose, 58,345 have had their second and 38,115 have had their booster. So for those that haven't done so yet don't be left out, join the majority of other Harlow residents and get vaccinated and get boosted.
