COVID-19 Daily Data Tracker

Description

This dataset contains daily data trackers for the COVID-19 pandemic, aggregated by month and starting 18th March 2020. The dataset is updated on weekly basis. The first release of COVID-19 data on this platform was on 1st June 2020.

The data is accurate as at 8.00 a.m. on Friday 07.05.21. Some narrative for the data covering the latest period is provided here below:

People with Covid Symptoms

• NHS Pathways/111 triages – as at 3.5.21 there had been 102 total covid triages in the CYC area in the last 7 days. The peak number of triages was 653 in the 7 day period to 20.9.20.

• As at 6.5.21, the Covid Symptom App estimates 109 per 100,000 in York with symptomatic covid (responses from a sample of 3,801 people). The peak rate was 1,283 on 7.1.21.

Diagnosed cases

• As at 7.5.21 York has had 12,297 cases since the start of the pandemic, a rate of 5,839 per 100,000 of population. The cumulative rate in York is below the national (6,874) and regional (7,189) averages. Cases identified through Lateral Flow Tests will be removed if they have a negative follow up PCR test within 72 hours so the cumulative total of cases can, on occasions, go down.

• 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 (3.5.21) is Red. In recent weeks the number of cases have been low in York which has an effect on the thresholds used to determine the RAG rating - a small change can mean the difference between a red, amber and green rating.

• The provisional rate of new Covid cases per 100,000 of population for the period 28.4.21 to 4.5.21 in York is 15.7 (33 cases). (Using data published on Gov.uk on 6.5.21).

• The latest official “validated” rate of new Covid cases per 100,000 of population for the period 25.4.21 to 1.5.21 in York was 18.5 (39 cases). The national and regional averages at this date were 22.5 and 44.1 respectively (using data published on Gov.uk on 6.5.21).

• 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.

• For the 7 day period 24.4.21.to 30.4.21, 1 ward (Heworth) had seen a statistically significant fall in rates compared with the 7 day period 17.4.21 to 23.4.21.

Of the referrals actioned, 167 (92.8%) were successful and 13 (7.2%) were unable to be reached via phone or home visit, but guidance leaflets were posted where possible.

Deaths

The two 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. The most recently available data is summarised below:

ONS Weekly data: In the most recent period (Week 16: 17.4.21 to 23.4.21) 0 Covid-19 deaths were recorded as having occurred for CYC residents. In weeks 13, 14 and 15 there had been 2, 0 and 2 deaths respectively.

ONS Cumulative data: Since the start of the pandemic, for deaths occurring up to 23rd April 2021 and registered up to 1st May 2021, 395 Covid-19 deaths were recorded as having occurred for CYC residents (228 in hospital, 135 in care homes, 24 at home/elsewhere and 8 in a hospice). The number of deaths per 100,000 of population in York is 187.54 which is lower than the national average of 231.27

Age / Gender breakdown (using registrar data): The average age of the CYC residents who died was 82.1, with an age range of 44-104. The age profile of the CYC residents who have died is older than the national average (79.5% were aged 75+ compared with 73.1% nationally). 48% of the CYC residents who died were male. The national average is 54.3%.
