Covid Sheffield: Every neighbourhood where cases are rising as restrictions come back into force
As masks and restrictions are brought back into force, here is how Sheffield’s rate of Covid infections is changing, according to the latest data.
The latest figures available show the number of new cases per 100,000 people in Sheffield hovered just below 300 for the week ending November 24 – not much different from where it was in the two weeks beforehand.
There were 1,743 new confirmed Covid-19 cases across the city in that period – a weekly rate of 297.1.
While this is still high, it compares to October, when rates were above 400.
It also compares to the current UK rate in the week leading up to November 29 of around 450.
It comes as the Government has announced “precautionary” Covid restrictions will be enforced in England again starting today in response to the emergence of the Omicron variant.
Masks will be required in shops and on public transport. Students in secondary school are also being advised to wear masks at school.
Two cases of the variant, which was first recorded in South Africa last week, have been confirmed in England.
Early evidence suggests the mutated virus is more transmissible and potentially resistant to current vaccines.
Below are all the areas of Sheffield which saw a rise in cases during the week ending November 24, the latest date for which more localised figures are available.
