Covid-19 infection rates have increased in all of Cambridgeshire’s major areas, the latest government data shows.
The latest data covers the seven days to June 3 and shows that case numbers rose in Peterborough, Fenland, East Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire, Cambridge, and South Cambridgeshire.
The highest rise in cases came in Fenland. The area had 15 Covid cases, which was a rise of 10 – 200 per cent – which gave it a rolling infection rate of 14.7 cases per 100,000.
Huntingdonshire had the next highest rise in case numbers. An 85.7 per cent increase meant that cases rose by 18 to a total of 39.
This means that Huntingdonshire has a rolling rate of 21.9 – the highest in Cambridgeshire.
East Cambridgeshire’s case numbers rose by two to a total of six, which marked a 50 per cent increase.
Cambridge had a 20 total cases – a rise of five or 33.3 per cent. This gave the city a rolling rate of 16.
Case numbers rose by one in both South Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. In the former, it took its total cases to 12 (a 9.1 per cent increase), giving it a rolling rate of 7.5.
The increase of one case (a 2.9 per cent rise) gave Peterborough a total of 35 cases and a rolling rate of 17.3.
Though case numbers rose in all parts of the county, each of Cambridgeshire’s major districts still had rolling rates which were some distance below the national average for the same period.
In the seven days to June, the UK had a rolling rate of 45.8 cases per 100,000 people, which was more than double the rate of any of Cambridgeshire’s major districts.
