Heat map shows majority of Nottingham Covid cases now among children – –


The latest heat maps provided by the government show the majority of Covid cases in Nottingham now involve children between the ages of 11 and 16.
The data is provided by Public Health England for the purpose of monitoring and supporting the management of Covid-19 infections in local authorities.

It shows that the infection rate of cases among children aged 11 to 16 was 151 cases per 100,000 city residents as of June 6.

It’s by far the highest in town, with the next age group being 17-18 with an infection rate of 87.

After that comes the 25-49 year old when the infection rate of cases in Nottingham is 40-6 June.

Public health bosses have said it is “unrealistic” to believe that vaccines alone will protect the public from Covid-19 in the months to come as cases start to soar again.

The two public health directors for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire said they did not know beforehand whether the removal of all restrictions on June 21 would be delayed.

But they added that Nottingham and Nottinghamshire were once again starting to see “a sharp increase” in the number of Covid-19 cases.

This week, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire reached a milestone as more than one million vaccinations have been administered since the start of the program.

Currently, those aged 25 and over can make an appointment by calling 119 or visiting the national reservations website.

Any member of the public aged 40 and over, clinically vulnerable, clinically extremely vulnerable and caregivers who have not had their Covid-19 vaccine can go to multiple locations and get vaccinated without a reservation.

Walk-in service is available at Forest Recreation Ground, King’s Meadow Campus, Gamston Community Center, Ashfield Health Village, Newark Showground, Richard Herrod Center and Mansfield Vaccination Center.

And the number of patients hospitalized with Covid-19 in Nottinghamshire has fallen again, according to NHS data.

There were nine Covid-19-related admissions in the seven days leading up to June 6, up from 16 in the previous seven days.

The Nottinghamshire NHS had 23 hospital beds occupied by Covid patients as of June 8, up from 27 on June 1.

The latest figures show that in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire 62,096 vaccines were administered last week.

A total of 1,042,531 vaccines were administered, of which 445,832 were second doses.
