A total of 127,259 people in the city have now had two jabs - or 61 per cent. Across the UK as a whole, 80.1 per cent have had both jabs.

Peterborough’s COVID case rate has been above the UK rate for much of 2021, and currently stands at 440.7 - and is rising again. The UK rate is 395.4.

The city was given Enhanced Response Area status to try and tackle the high rate, and the low vaccine take up rate.

But despite the efforts, yesterday Peterborough City Hospital re-introduced visiting restrictions to help keep staff and patients safe.

Government statistics show that there are 98 patients in North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust Hospitals (Peterborough, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford & Rutland) with COVID.

Five people have died within 28 days of a positive test in Peterborough so far in November.
