Coronavirus rates in Peterborough are currently at their lowest since last summer, with a rate of 33.6 cases per 100,000 people (as of May 7).

Peterborough spent much of the winter in the top 20 areas in the country - with some spells in the top 10. The current case rate means the city has now dropped out of the top 40, and sits 45th.

The rate is still higher than the UK rate of 21.6.

Ten of the 22 neighbourhoods in the city have recorded two or fewer cases in the seven days up to May 7.

In the past 50 days there have been two COVID related deaths (within 28 days of a positive test) in Peterborough (on March 25 and April 16).

In the past 10 days (up to May 2), just two patients have been admitted to hospitals run by the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust (Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford & Rutland). There are currently 12 COVID patients in the hospitals, with just one on a mechanical ventilation bed.
