In the seven days up to January 6 there were a total of 3,539 COVID cases reported in Peterborough - up by 804 compared to the previous week.

The daily rate in the city has, however, dropped for the first time in eight days - standing at 1,746.6 cases per 100,000 people on January 6. This is still the third highest rate recorded in Peterborough during the pandemic, as omicron spreads through the city.

The latest data shows that on January 4, there were 96 COVID patients in hospitals run by the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust (Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford & Rutland) - the highest number since November 11 last year.
