Latest Covid-19 figures for local areas


The latest figures have been released showing that most local areas, except for Alderley Edge and Chelford and Lacey Green and Wilmslow Park have seen a decrease in Covid-19 cases compared to the previous week.

The map, produced by Public Health England, has been updated to show where the new coronavirus cases have been recorded during the 7 day period ending February 25th.

The map breaks down areas by 'middle super output areas' and shows that the infection rate has halved in many local areas during the current lockdown.

These latest figures from Public Health England show the number of cases during the 7 day period and the infection rate per 100,000 people.

• Alderley Edge and Chelford – 7 84.6 (250%)

• Handforth and Dean Row – 11 101.2 (-42.1%)

• Mobberley, Plumley and High Legh – 4 33.4 (-69.2%)

• Wilmslow Town – 7 99.9 (-12.5%)

• Lacey Green and Wilmslow Park - 6 90.9 (200%)

• Fulshaw Park and Lindow - 7 96.8 (-12.5%)

• Prestbury and Adlington - 3 58.7 (-57.1%)

% = change from previous 7 day period.

During this seven day period, Cheshire East had 356 cases, which represents a 16% decrease on the previous 7 days. The infection rate per 100,000 is 92.7.

On 3rd January 2021, the government website showed 44 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Lacey Green which is about 400 yards from a sewage treatment works.

The RNA of SARS-CoV-2 has been found in many sewers according to a report for the government SAGE committee of 19 Nov 2020. Rats are common in sewers and therefore may become infected with Covid and shed the virus back into the sewage. As the sewage is drip trickled into the filtration beds, might it be possible for the virus to become airborne.

I have brought this remote possibility to the attention of Sir Patrick Vallance and Rt Hon Chris Whitty, both members of the SAGE committee, via the government Cabinet Office but as yet have not received any reply.
