COVID-19 Daily Data Tracker

Description

This dataset contains daily data trackers for the COVID-19 pandemic, aggregated by month and starting 18.3.20. The first release of COVID-19 data on this platform was on 1.6.20. Please note this frequency of this release is changing from weekly to monthly and will be published on the first Friday of each month.

The data is accurate as at 8.00 a.m. on Friday 06.05.22. Some narrative for the data covering the latest period is provided here below:

ONS Covid Infection Survey

With fewer tests being carried out, the 7 day case rate, used in isolation, is a less reliable indicator of the level of covid infection in the local population. Therefore the estimates for York from the ONS Covid Infection Survey are also presented to provide a more balanced picture.

• For the period 17.4.22 to 23.4.22 it is estimated that 4.38% of York’s population (about 1 in 25) would test positive for Covid-19. This represents a reduction from the previous estimate of 6.79% (about 1 in 15) for the period 27.3.22 to 2.4.22.

People with Covid Symptoms

• As at 4.5.22, the Covid Symptom App estimates 3,804 people per 100,000 (or 3.8%) in York with symptomatic covid (responses from a sample of 2,279 people).

Diagnosed cases / episodes

• As at 5.5.22 CYC residents have had a total 64,890 covid episodes since the start of the pandemic, a rate of 30,752 per 100,000 of population. The cumulative rate in York is below the national (32,874) and regional (32,628) averages.

• The PHE ‘Exceedance’ rating compares the no. of new cases over a 14 day period with the previous 6 weeks and provides a RAG rating to indicate if the previously observed trend in the number of new cases is worsening. The latest rating for York (2.5.22) is Green.

• The provisional rate of new Covid episodes per 100,000 of population for the period 27.4.22 to 3.5.22 in York is 107.1 (226 episodes). (Using data published on Gov.uk on 5.5.22).

• The latest official “validated” rate of new Covid episodes per 100,000 of population for the period 24.4.22 to 30.4.22 in York was 119.9 (253 episodes). The national and regional averages at this date were 124.3 and 121.7 respectively (using data published on Gov.uk on 5.5.22).

• York is currently ranked 72nd out of 149 Upper Tier Local Authorities (UTLAs) in England with a rank of 1 indicating the lowest 7 day rate.

• The rate of new Covid cases per 100,000 of population for the period 24.4.22 to 30.4.22 for people aged 60+ in York was 156.3 (78 cases). The national and regional averages were 154.4 and 161.1 respectively.

• Case rates in York are currently highest in the following age ranges: 90+ (422 per 100,000); 50-54 (254); 65-69 (184) and 80-84 (173).

• As at 30.4.22, the latest 14 day positivity rate in York (all Pillar 2 tests) was 2.6%. The national and regional averages are 4.9% and 5.2% respectively.

• The latest ‘outbreak’ (2+ cases of either a staff member or resident) in a residential care setting in York was reported by PHE on 6.5.22 (1 home).

COVID Bed Occupancy in York Hospital

• As at 2.5.22 there were 77 confirmed Covid-19 patients in General/Acute beds. The peak number was 158 on 28.3.22.

• As at 2.5.22 there were 2 confirmed Covid-19 patients in the Intensive Treatment Unit. The peak number for people in ITU was 19 on 10.5.20.

Post-Acute Covid-19

Post-acute COVID is defined as signs and symptoms that develop during or after an infection consistent with COVID-19, which continue for more than 12 weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.

• The Situational Awareness Explorer Post-Acute Covid-19 model currently predicts that in York, in the 2 month period 1.5.22 to 30.6.22, there will be 975 new cases of post-acute Covid, of which 185 will require services. (Model Refreshed on 29.3.22)

R Number

• The ‘R’ value (the number of people that one infected person will pass on a virus to, on average) for the North East and Yorkshire area on 29.4.22 was estimated to be in the range 0.7 to 0.9.

Variants

In the latest month for which data is available in York (cases with a specimen date between 2nd April 2022 and 1st May 2022) the estimated percentage breakdown by Variant of Concern (VOC) or Variant under Investigation (VUI) is as follows:

• VOC-21NOV-01 (Lineage B.1.1.529) - Original Omicron strain BA.1: 28.89% of cases

Deaths

Two key sources about deaths from Covid-19 at LA level are ONS data and local registrar data. They are derived from the same source (civil registration data). ONS data is more comprehensive as it includes deaths of York residents which have occurred and been registered outside York. Local registrar data provides a breakdown by age and gender. For both data sources a death from Covid-19 is said to have occurred when Covid-19 has been recorded on the death certificate. The most recently available data is summarised below:

ONS Weekly data: In the most recent period (2022 Week 16: 16.4.22 to 22.4.22) 1 Covid-19 death was recorded as having occurred for CYC residents. In weeks 15, 14 and 13 there had been 6, 1 and 6 deaths respectively. Please note that due to lags in death registration, weekly totals are subject to revision.

ONS Cumulative data: Since the start of the pandemic, for deaths occurring up to 22nd April 2022 and registered up to 30th April 2022, 495 Covid-19 deaths were recorded as having occurred for CYC residents (305 in hospital, 146 in care homes, 36 at home/elsewhere and 8 in a hospice). The number of deaths per 100,000 of population in York is 234.6 which is lower than the national average of 291.9

Source: ONS - Deaths registered weekly in England and Wales, provisional: week ending 22 April 2022. Released 4.5.22.

Age / Gender breakdown (using registrar data): The average age of the CYC residents who died was 81.5, with an age range of 30-104. 77.4% of the CYC residents who died were aged 75+. 48.7% of the CYC residents who died were male.
