Report published 6th November 2020
Cases data from week 28th October - 3rd November 2020
Data extracted covering testing up to 3rd November 2020 show that the total number of confirmed cases for the last 7 days is 1496, a decrease of 575 cases on the previous week. The latest weekly rate of Covid-19 in Liverpool is 300.4 per 100,000 population and the latest positivity testing rate* is 13.3%.
The majority of cases (50%) were in those aged under 40 years, whereas 29% cases were in those aged 40-59 yrs. Of all the confirmed cases in the last seven days 53% were female and 47% were male. Of those cases where ethnicity was given, 82% people were recorded as White British and 18% people were from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background.
Compared to the previous week, we have seen a slight decrease in rates of new infections in the city, however the current 7-day rate remains very high. The rate of new infections in older people is particularly worrying at the current very high level, resulting in increased pressure on hospitals and deaths from Covid-19 for weeks to come.
The wards with the largest number of confirmed cases are Fazakerley (77 cases), Riverside (77 cases), Yew Tree (76 cases), Princes Park (66 cases), Everton (65 cases), Picton (63 cases), Knotty Ash (63 cases), Old Swan (55 cases), and Speke-Garston (55 cases).
Between 30th October - 5th November 2020 there were 204 registered deaths in Liverpool, of which 46% (n=94) were Covid-19 deaths.
