Latest Statement from Director of Public Health
Message from Emma Ferguson (Stockport Council)
The latest statement from Director of Public Health, Jen Connolly, is here.
Coronavirus rates in the borough are still high and are currently at 510.9* cases per 100,000 and 214.1 new cases each day.
We have the highest rates in Greater Manchester and 12th highest nationally, particularly in the 10-19 age cohort, with cases four times higher than the next highest cohort. With this in mind the statement focuses this week on the importance of keeping up basic infection control methods to stop the transmission, the 12-15 vaccination offer and the opening of the national booking line to those aged 16 and over.
Unfortunately, there has also been an increase in criminal scams around the NHS Covid Pass to try to steal money and sensitive information from people.
Generally on our social channels we will continue to be asking residents to get a vaccine when called – especially to get two vaccines, to continue lateral flow tests especially secondary school and college students, antibody testing, hands, face, space and ventilation messages and the opening of the national booking line for 16+.
