Despite Nationwide Lockdown, More Than 200 Areas in England Have Seen a Rise in COVID Cases

New national rolling data shows that despite lockdowns and major tiered restrictions, coronavirus cases are still surging throughout England.

News of a vaccine has recently hit the stands, but despite the jab being 90% per cent effective, we are still far from being out of the woods.

Most recent rolling data of the week to November 5th shows shocking increases of coronavirus cases around England despite the areas being in total lockdown.

Oldham, which was placed into tier three right before the nationwide lockdownhas already seen a sharp increase from 698.8 cases per 100,000 on the week ending October 29th to 773.9 (1835 new cases) on the week ending November 5th.

The new data places the Greater Manchester town as the top of the list as the most affected area in the country.

Data shows that out of 315 areas in England 210 of them have recently seen a worrying increase in coronavirus infections including Hull.

The East Yorkshire town has doubled its cases of coronavirus over the last week going from just 373 cases per 100,000 to 671.3 with 1744 new cases.

Despite the good news of a vaccine rolling out over the new year by Pfizer and their partner BioNTech. Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently addressed the public from Downing Street to warn them that the nation is yet to be over the hurdle. He stated:

These are very very early days. I have talked about the distant bugle of the scientific cavalry coming over the brow of the hill. That toot of that bugle is louder but still some way off. We cannot rely on this news as a solution.

So far data has confirmed Johnson’s thoughts as Blackburn with Darwen has the second-highest rate of infection despite their numbers dropping from the week before. On the week of October 29th, the area had a rate 0f 730.1 per 100,000 which has now gone down slightly to 719.5.

North East Lincolnshire, Scarborough and Amber Valley have also all seen a rather alarming jump in infections over the last week with Amber Valley going from 273.1 to 423.0 cases per 100,000.

Data confirmed on Monday the 9th also showed that the coronavirus death toll has risen by 194 to 49,238, with another 21,350 people testing positive for the virus within the 24 hours from Sunday to Monday.
