The number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last seven days has fallen marginally, with Pendle recording 264 new cases.

For the second week running, the age group with most new cases is 40 – 49 year olds with 44 cases. This is followed by 50 – 59 year olds with 36 cases and 20 – 29 year olds with 33 cases. 

Sadly, there have been two deaths this week (within 28 days of a positive test).  

Meanwhile the infection rate has fallen slightly to 283.2 per 100k. 

The vaccination take-up rate continues to rise in Pendle. 76.6% of adults have now had their first dose and 67.3% have had their second dose.  

Everyone is still being encouraged to get their first dose of the vaccine, including those who missed out when it was first offered.
