Reported Covid rates have finally dropped below 100 per 100,000 in our area.
There’s still no room for complacency as rates can spike up, but this is a really positive move.
The rate in Pity Me and Framwellgate Moor has fallen to 63.1/100k, down 66% in the last week up to 16th Feb, and in Newton Hall/Brasside it is down 53% to 73.1/100k.
That means in the last reported week there were only 6 cases in Newton Hall and 4 in Framwellgate Moor/Pity Me. Hopefully these cases are not severe ones.
Please keep following the rules and if possible wear a mask outside in shopping areas too. Together we can beat this.
