Four weeks since last COVID related death in Peterborough
It has now been four weeks since the last COVID related death (within 28 days of a positive test) in Peterborough, statistics have revealed.
The last death within 28 days of a positive test in the city was on March 25. With no deaths recorded yesterday (April 22), it now means it has been 28 days since the last death - the longest run without a death in Peterborough since the pandemic began.
The case rate in Peterborough has continued to fall, and now stands at 47 cases per 100,000 people - the lowest it has been for several months.
It is now less than double the UK rate (24.8), after a run of several weeks when it was more than twice as high as the nation figure. The rate is still the 27th highest in the country, however.
