Latest figures released by the Government last night show that on February 15 there were 100 patients in North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust hospitals - which includes Peterborough City Hospital was 100. The peak during the Omicron wave was on February 1, when there were 131 patients.

The vaccination campaign is continuing in Peterborough - but the city is still lagging along way behind the UK average.

A total of 47.5 per cent of people aged 12 and over in Peterborough have now had a booster jab, compared to a UK rate of 65.9 per cent - despite Peterborough having had one of the highest case rates throughout the winter.

The case rate is now falling, and is at its lowest level since December 19 - but remains well above the UK rate.
