Cambridgeshire has recorded more than 2,200 confirmed Covid-19 cases in a week as the Delta variant continues to ran rife in the community.

Every area of the county recorded substantial rises in cases in the week to July 18, although provisional data for the last few days suggests the rate of increase may have slowed down a little.

Below, we look in detail at all the data for every area of the county down to a neighbourhood level.

There were 2,226 cases in the seven days to July 18, up 844 (61.1 per cent) on the previous week.

And data shows the under-30s - many of whom will not yet be double vaccinated - are experiencing the highest rates of infection.

Among the age group 25-29, there were 355 cases, with 354 cases among those aged 20-24. The 15-19 age group was also significantly affected, with 322 cases. The 30-34 age group, and then the 10-14 age group, came next.

The latest data shows Cambridgeshire, excluding Peterborough, has now recorded:

  • 35,269 confirmed cases since the pandemic began, as of July 23, 2021
  • 1,263 in the five days from July 19-23 according daily case data, which is subject to change
  • 805 deaths by July 23 within 28 days of a positive test, the last of which was on July 18
  • 988 deaths, as of July 9, in which Covid-19 is mentioned on the death certificate.

There were warnings this week from public health officials and the police about taking personal responsibility now that Covid restrictions have legally been lifted.
