Cumbria Covid-19 cases continue to fall


The latest data for Cumbria shows new cases of COVID-19 in the county continue to fall. The latest COVID-19 update report can be found at: www.cumbria.gov.uk/stopthespread

There were 28 confirmed cases in week end 21 August, down from 60 in the preceding week.

Carlisle continues to have the highest number of new cases among Cumbrian districts, but fewer than the preceding week.

The data also shows that young people now make up a majority of the new cases, with nearly 1 in 3 being between 15 and 29 years old.

Colin Cox, Cumbria’s Director Public Health, said:

“I’m pleased to see a significant drop in the number of new cases this week, but as ever we must remain cautious.

“Evidence coming from elsewhere in Europe is showing the virus on the increase again, significantly so in some cases. If we want to avoid that here, then people must continue to stick to the guidance. The virus is far from beaten and we continue to monitor the situation closely.

“This week’s figures highlight that more young people, aged 15-19, are catching the virus than any other age group. We know young people are generally more socially active, and for them symptoms are usually mild - but the danger is that they spread it to older more vulnerable family members who are more at risk.

“The simple advice is wash your hands, cover your face and make space. If everyone keeps doing that we’ll keep the virus in check.”

 The key public health messages remain:
  • Wash or sanitise hands regularly.
  • Observe social distancing rules.
  • Wear face masks or coverings in enclosed public spaces, including taxis.
  • If you have symptoms, self-isolate and get tested.
  • Follow advice to self-isolate if asked.
