The number of positive cases of coronavirus continues to slowly fall during lockdown.

22 cases were recorded yesterday, which is down from 23 recorded the previous day.

The data was collected by Public Health England and figures were updated yesterday evening

315 cases were recorded in Gedling borough during the seven-day period ending on November 13, with the rate among 100,000 population being 267.2%.

It is still unclear if Gedling borough will face Tier 3 restrictions when the area emerges from lockdown in just under two weeks on December 2.

Gedling Eye asked the question on a call with Public Health Chiefs Jonathan Gribbin and Alison Challenger.

Mr Gribbin, who is Public Health director for Nottinghamshire said: “I would ask the people in Gedling to follow and stick to the lockdown rules.

“We want to work towards having no additional restrictions, and that is only going to come by following lockdown rules”.

Alison Challenger, Public Health director for Nottingham City, said “We don’t know yet.”

“We’ve heard the tier system will be brought back and there will be some form of local management.

“Discussions are taking place on the escalation or de-escalation of areas, but it really all depends on lockdown.

  • I am a little baffled by the figure given in the paragraph:
    315 cases were recorded in Gedling borough during the seven day period ending on November 13, with the rate among 100,000 population being 267.2%

    Please could you explain this figure? Surely not every one of 100,000 has been infected 2.67 times? Or have I misunderstood?
