More than half of Peterborough neighbourhoods are nearly COVID free - as rate drops again
More than half of the neighbourhoods in Peterborough are now nearly COVID free, as the rate in the city has fallen to its lowest level since last summer.
Just eight of the 22 neighbourhoods in the city saw three or more cases in the seven days up to May 13.
Two areas saw six cases, three saw four cases, and three saw three cases.
Where neighbourhoods record two or fewer cases, the government does not publish detailed data to protect individuals’ identities.
Overall, there were 52 cases in Peterborough during the week - a drop of 23 compared to the previous week.
The rate in Peterborough now stands at 25.7 cases per 100,000 people - the lowest it has been since last summer, and only just ahead of the UK rate of 22.
It has now been more than a month since the last COVID related death (within 28 days of a positive test) in the city.
