The number of cases of Covid-19 in Cambridgeshire dropped by just over a fifth in the week to September 12, with every area recording a fall.

But the county has now passed another unwanted milestone, with more than 50,000 cases now officially recorded since the pandemic began.

Below, we look in detail at how every area has been affected, down to a neighbourhood level.

Following the return of schools, health authorities will be watching carefully to see if there is an impact on transmission and the infection rate in the coming weeks.

Cambridgeshire had 1,666 cases in the week to September 12, down 475 (22.2 per cent) on the previous week.

The county’s infection rate of 253.5 cases per 100,000 was below the national rate of 337, although Fenland and neighbouring Peteborough’s rate was above this.

Cambridgeshire, excluding Peterborough, has now recorded:

  • 50,513 confirmed cases since the pandemic began, as of September 17, 2021
  • 1,178 in the five days from September 13-17 according daily case data, which is subject to change

  • 1,010 deaths, as of September 3, in which Covid-19 is mentioned on the death certificate.

Vaccinations

Nearly four-fifths (79.7 per cent) of people in Cambridgeshire have had their first Covid-19 jab, while just under three-quarters (73.7 per cent) have had two vaccinations.

Official figures suggest the proportion vaccinated in Cambridge is much lower - with 64.1 per cent (102,772 people) having had their first vaccination and just 57.4 per cent (92,153 people) having had both, although these percentages may be a slight underestimate because of uncertainty over Cmabridge’s fluctuating population numbers,

Overall, some 976,952 Covid-19 jabs have been administered in Cambridgeshire - 507,513 first jabs and 469,439 second jabs.

In Peterborough, 256,548 vaccinations have been administered - 69.2 per cent have had their first dose, while 61.7 per cent have had both.

Walk-in clinics offering Covid-19 jabs to all over-16s have extended their opening hours this month. You can find a full list of the opening times here.
