Director of Public Health Issues Plea
This week’s surveillance report, an analysis of the recent Coronavirus cases and rates over the period 9 – 15 November, shows that 1,642 residents have tested positive in the county since last week and that Northamptonshire’s total cases in the last week are nearly nine times higher than the weekly averages seen last month.
Northamptonshire’s Director of Public Health, Lucy Wightman, issued a letter to all residents on Tuesday saying “We are currently seeing the largest rise in cases in Northamptonshire since the first national lockdown. Positive cases range across all age groups, but significantly are largest in the age groups from 10-59.” The letter goes on to say “We all need to work hard to ensure that case numbers reduce in our local area, to ensure that we keep the people we love safe, and so that we can return to a more normal way of living as soon as possible when the national measures come to an end.”
