Daily Cases and the Rate of Coronavirus Infection within the Areas of Kent as from 31 st May 2020. (The rate is defined as per 100 000 people).

 

This information has been collated from the daily statistics published on the Gov.UK site. These daily publications

 reflect the cases and transmission rate for the previous day except 3 & 4.10.20 when an extra 15841 missed

cases were added nationally. The daily cases and rate will be collected and produced for each week as from the date

the government decided schools should re-open i.e.  1st June 2020. In addition, at the end of each week, other information

will be collected from borough, county and regional levels from across England to provide a snapshot comparison with the

 areas within Kent. Kent Live reported that the figure for Ashford on 1.6.20 ie 625.8 was a rise of 89.8 in the rate per 100 000

 from 11 days previously. On 2.7.20 Public Health England changed the reporting methodology to include those identified by

testing in all settings (Pillars 1 & 2). On 4.8.20 reporting was moved to a BETA release site and some of the rates per 100 000

 reduced. A new 3 Tier Alert system was introduced on 14.10.20. Cells are coloured as follows:- Red = increase from previous day,

 No Colour = no change, Green = decrease from previous day, Purple = increase > 40 cases a week, Navy = >100 cases a week,

Burgundy = >150 cases pw., Blue = 200+cases  a week, Yellow = 300+ cases a week, Grey = 400+ cases pw and Black = 500+ cases pw

 with change of font colour for every next 100 cases. At 26.5.20 Ashford transmission rate was 589.4. Where cases rise 9+ in a single day,

 figures are made bold and italicised. There was a revision of historical data starting 18.5.21.
