Omicron震中出现 242 地区病例增加 – 在名单上是你的?

A NEW Omicron epicentre has emerged and this interactive map reveals if your local area is a hotspot for infections.

Coronavirus cases have risen in 242 areas in the last seven days and there are five areas where infections have climbed at a rapid rate.

Cases have fallen in just 134 areas in the seven days to January 7 and the map above shows current infection rates, with an epicentre of infections forming in the North East of England.

But many people who are now testing positive with Omicron are suffering with milder symptoms, which often appear to be more like a cold.

It’s because of the milder nature of the virus, and the pressure coronavirus isolation puts on various parts of society such as schools and work places, that the government is considering slashing the time spent in isolation to just five days.

But some health officials have questioned this, and say that some people could still be infectious at this point.

Health officials in the US made the decision last year, cutting the number of days spent in isolation after catching Covid from 10 days to five.

In the UK this was cut from 10 days to seven, with Brits having to test negative with a lateral flow on day six and seven in order to enjoy freedom.

GET BOOSTED NOW!

Boris tells Brits ‘get boosted NOW’ & help speed up return to normal life

A string of hugely positive studies show Omicron IS milder than other strains, with the first official UK report revealing the risk of hospitalisation is 50 到 70 per cent lower than with Delta.

Covid booster jabs protect against Omicron and offer the best chance to get through the 大流行病, health officials have repeatedly said.

The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Britsarms to ward off the need for any new restrictions.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that life could return to normal soon as Omicron is peakingbut said that the only way to do this would be if everyone got their booster vaccines.

Yesterday the PM also said he wouldact according to the sciencearound cutting the self-isolation period for Covid-19 cases.

Derry City & Strabane in Northern Ireland continues to have the highest rate of Covid infections in the UK, 和 6,065 new cases in the seven days to January 6, the equivalent of 4,013.7 per 100,000 人们.

This is up from a rate of 3,777.4 for the seven days to December 30.

Fermanagh & Omagh in Northern Ireland has the second highest rate, up from 2,922.4 到 3,309.3, 和 3,883 new cases.

Figures for Northern Ireland as a whole show that six additional deaths were recorded yesterday, 还有一个 2,706 案件.

Some year groups in Northern Irish schools have this week returned to remote learning due to issues caused by Omicron such as further infections and staff shortages.

NEW EPICENTRE

Middlesbrough has the third highest rate, up from 1,648.4 到 3,144.0, 和 4,442 new cases.

Middlesbrough, in the North East is also the area where cases have risen the fastest in the last seven days.

All five areas where cases have seen a rapid increase are in the North East of England.

Just a 28 minute drive away, and the second area which has seen the biggest rise in cases is Hartlepool, where infections have climbed from 1,548.4 到 2,816.6.

Sunderland jumped from 1,404.4 到 2,619.8, Redcar & Cleveland from 1,681.1 到 2,879.9 and South Tyneside also witnessed a jump from 1,500.0 到 2634.8.

The jump in the North East was also reflected in the R rate data which was published on Friday.

Before the Christmas period, London had the highest R rate, but as data shows that the capital could have passed the peak of infections, the North East and Yorkshire recorded the highest R rate, between 1.3 到 1.6.

It was followed by the North West, which sits between 1.3 到 1.5.

The Midlands is at 1.2 到 1.5 and the East of England sits between 1.1 和 1.3.

Both the South East and the South West recorded an R rate between 1.0 到 1.3.

London currently has the lowest R rate in England, and sits between 0.9 到 1.2.

It’s important to note that the R rate changes over time and if R is greater than 1, then it means the epidemic is growing.

Visiting rules in hospitals across the North East have been introduced this week in order to protect patients receiving treatment.

Dr Mike Tildesley rom the University of Warwick and a member of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Modelling group (Spi-M) said that the rise in hospitalisations in the North East was concerning.

Most other parts of the country are about two to three weeks behind where London is in their epidemic profile.

Particularly concerning is the North East and the North West – if you look at hospital admissions in those two regions they are going up, also the Midlands, where I live, that’s also a little bit concerning, so it is a worry.

他加了: “On the slightly more positive side, so it doesn’t sound all doom and gloom, what we are seeing from hospital admissions is that stays in hospital do appear to be on average shorter, which is good news, symptoms appear to be a little bit milder, so this is what we are seeing consistently with the Omicron variant”, he told Times Radio this weekend.

Across the UK a further 142,224 cases of Covid were reported yesterday, the first increase in infections in days.

在星期天 141,472 案件 were reported and on Saturday 146,390 people also tested positive.

But deaths have fallen.

可悲的是, a further 77 people have lost their lives, 28 days after testing positive, bringing the total death rate in the UK to 150,230.

This is a drop from Sunday’s total of 97 fatalities and the 313 死亡人数 that were reported on Saturday, 和 229 deaths reported on Friday.

Drop in daily UK Covid cases stalls as 142,224 new infections reported but deaths fall
