Please Beware- Covid19 Is On The Rise Again.

Hi I just want my residents in Wednesfield North aware that thre is a stream of medical advice which is warning that infection rates are on the rise in our City and other areas.”

With Covid-19 infection rates rising rapidly, residents are being urged to remain vigilant and are reminded that first, second and booster vaccinations are still widely available in Wolverhampton.
Latest estimates from the Office for National Statistics suggest that 1,829,100 people in England had Covid in the week up to 24 June – equivalent to 3.35% of the population or around one in 30 people. A week earlier, that rate was one in 40, marking an increase of around 30% in seven days.

In Wolverhampton, 434 people tested positive for Covid-19 in the last week, though with free testing no longer widely available, the true number of new cases is likely to be considerably higher.
