Coronavirus cases back on the rise, as map shows one Teesside postcode reported 300% increase – Teesside Live

Covid cases are on the rise in Teesside with one postcode reporting a 300% increase in infections.

New data released by Public Health England shows most neighbourhoods have seen a spike after months of declining numbers, according to the Government covid map. In Dormanstown the total number of cases has risen by 16 -a 300% increase.

Others areas which have seen surging numbers include Norton south which reported a 157.1% increase in covid cases and central Stockon, Portrack & Low Hartburn Public Health which recorded a 133.3% spike.

Last week Teesside Live reported that the Office of National Statistics has seen an increase over a two-week period in mid-June from one in 70 people being infected to one in 38 people, more than 2% of the population. The number of people in hospital with Covid-19 in the region has also increased in recent days.

The latest figures show millions of people across the country now have Covid again thanks to the new Omicron strains BA.4 and BA.5. Well over 1,000 people a day are going into hospital and UK health chiefs this weekend said the current wave has not yet peaked.

There are fears that huge events such as the Jubilee celebration and Glastonbury may have helped spread the current strains – and there are fears travel restrictions could return to holidays this summer, with people advised to wear masks and wash their hands again.

Earlier this month, top Teesside doctor and blogger Dr Richard Cree updated readers and said James Cook is currently dealing with 75 coronavirus patients.

Dr Cree said: “The number of patients who are being admitted to hospital following infection has been steadily decreasing, as has the number of deaths caused by the virus. Whilst there are a total of 75 patients at James Cook who have tested positive for Covid-19, only 20 of these are deemed to be still infectious and need to be isolated. The rest have all recovered, meaning they can be looked after on regular wards.”

Case rates are calculated by dividing the seven-day total by the area population and multiplying by 100,000. The map shows the case rate per 100,000 people for a seven–day period ending on June 26: Below are the latest coronavirus infection rates for each area, followed by the number of cases.
