Barrow Covid-19 restrictions may be working


717 new COVID19 cases were reported in Cumbria in the week ending 16 October, up from 612 the previous week.

While Barrow continued to have the highest number of new cases (194), the infection rate decreased slightly over the previous week (295/100k to 289/100k), providing an early indication that the local restrictions that have been put in place may be having a positive impact. The area’s infection rate remains the highest in Cumbria and well above the national average (170/100k).

The Barrow Borough Council area remains a High Alert area. All other parts of the county are Medium Alert. 

Carlisle also saw a large rise in new cases compared the previous week, up from 87 to 190. A significant rise in Eden is also of concern but may be related to increased levels of testing in the district. Both areas now have an infection rate slightly higher than the national average and are being monitored closely, with consideration being given to whether further action may be required to reduce infection spread.

This week’s data also shows that for the first time since August the 45-59 year old age group saw the highest number of new cases, overtaking 15-29 year olds.

There were 50 confirmed COVID-19 patients in hospital beds in Cumbria compared to 29 the previous week.
