COVID-19 cases on the increase

COVID-19 cases on the increase

Positive cases have doubled since last week and residents are being urged to strictly follow national and local Public Health guidance to prevent a further rapid rise. This week's surveillance report (28 September – 04 October), shows that 417 residents have tested positive in Northamptonshire since last week. This is more than double last week's figure of 148 and is not a result of the data recording delays recently reported by Public Health England – this is a real and significant increase. The county as a whole, and all districts and boroughs, have seen an increase in cases compared to the previous week. The areas with the highest case numbers were in Northampton, East Northamptonshire and Kettering.

Chelveston-cum-Caldecott Parish Council urges all residents to wear masks when required, keep your distance and wash or sanitise hands frequently. Numbers will only stop increasing if we all follow the guidelines.
