Weekly Cases / Community infections

  • The first laboratory confirmed cases of COVID 19 in Doncaster were on the 10th March 2020. The graph below shows the weekly totals of confirmed COVID 19 cases among Doncaster residents. There have been 17,215 confirmed cases in Doncaster since the start of the pandemic.
  • The numbers of confirmed cases fell from the end of May until the end of August. There were small fluctuations in late July and August, mostly due to isolated community cases and cases in Care Homes, where management plans were put in place.
  • Local analysis shows there are 975 positive cases in Doncaster in the week ending 15th January. This is likely to increase as additional data become available next week. The official 7 day rate, which looks at the number of positive tests per 100,000 people over a rolling 7 day period, is 359.7 per 100,000 as at Friday 15th January. This is an increase compared to the previous week, when the rate was reported as 331.0 per 100,000.
  • It is worth bearing in mind that mass testing was not available in the first months of the pandemic so the cases showing in September, October, November and December can’t be compared like for like with what we see in the spring.
  • Regardless of the specific published numbers, it is very clear that there has been a significant growth in Doncaster’s numbers up to the end of December. The numbers of new cases is a concern and Doncaster Council and partners in the NHS and Social Care are working together to address this, both at a local level and across the borough.
  • The table now shows the numbers of cases split between age groups.

*To ensure cases start to fall, we need to keep to the basics:

  • Stay at home
  • Maintain physical distancing
  • Wash our hands regularly
  • Wear face coverings wherever required
  • If we do get any symptoms we think might be Coronavirus, we need to book a test straight away.
