There is an expected announcement today of a wide-reaching tier review for England.
It is worth reflecting on the most recent updates of infection rates for the region, given the conjecture as to what may be announced.
- Data is available up to 26 December 2020.
- North Yorkshire now has an infection rate per 100,000 of 188.7 a move up from 129 reported on 21 Dec.
- Scarborough has reduced 253.2 to 213.3
- Hambleton and Richmondshire has seen increases (see the table below)
Additional points from previous reports
- As reported by the CCG/ NHS the Harrogate Nightingale can’t be used as there is no resources for it.
- On 21 December, hospitals were reported as being in a good position (176 cases of Covid-19, 21 of those in ICU and staff sickness/ self-isolating better than an average year)
- Harrogate has had 203 cases (7 days to 26 December) or an increase of around 63 cases per week from 7 days to 21 December.
- We don’t have recent data for the % of tests returning positive (previously it was less than 5%)
