Covid: Nottinghamshire case rates higher than England average – city sees 19% increase in a week

Public Health bosses brief the media in Nottinghamshire on 1 October 2021. 

David Johns, Consultant in Public Health at Nottingham City Council said:

‘Once again we are strong to see increases in our case rates, in the seven days to the 25 September we saw 855 cases, a rate of 253 / 100,000 residents, a 19% increase on the previous seven days. This is in keeping with increases across England. Nottingham city’s rate is still lower than the England average rate of 334 /100,000.’

‘The rise across England and Nottingham is largely because of an increase in primary school children.’

‘In the 25-40 year age band we’ve seen lower uptake of vaccinations too.’

Jonathan Gribbin, Public Health Director for Nottinghamshire county said:

‘We are seeing increased rates, the county rate is currently 447 / 100,000 versus and England rate of  334 / 100,000.’

Age groups over-60 and working age adults rates are flat, young people age 12-17 have seen a doubling of rates in that age group, around 1,000 in a week.

The rates vary across the county, with Bassetlaw 521 / 100,000 the highest local authority area.’

They both urged the public to stick to hands, face, space, get tested when necessary and to get vaccinated. They all advise face coverings in enclosed public spaces.
