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 5,549 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.
- The total confirmed cases for the week ending the 23rd October is 928. This is likely to increase as additional data become available next week. The 7 day rate which looks at the number of positive tests per 100,000 people over a rolling 7 day period is 314.5 cases per 100,000 people in the most recent monitoring period in the borough. This is likely to continue to rise.
- 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 and October 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. This is in line with national and regional trends. The local growth in cases is concerning and Doncaster council and partners in the NHS and Social Care are working together to address these increases, both at a local level and across the borough.
