131 further coronavirus cases in Crawley, official figures show
The number of coronavirus cases in Crawley increased by 131 in the last 24 hours, official figures show.
A total of 16,798 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in Crawley when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on November 18 (Thursday), up from 16,667 on Wednesday.
The rate of infection in Crawley now stands at 14,935 cases per 100,000 people, higher than the England average of 14,578.
Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 46,858 over the period, to 9,721,916.
However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded in the latest 24-hour period in Crawley.
The dashboard shows 217 people had died in the area by November 18 (Thursday) – which was unchanged from Wednesday.
It means there have been three deaths in the past week, which is an increase on two the previous week.
They were among 18,610 deaths recorded across the South East.
The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Crawley.
Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.
The figures also show that nearly three-quarters of people in Crawley have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The latest figures show 75,410 people had received both jabs by November 17 (Wednesday) – 71% of those aged 12 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
Across England, 80% of people aged 12 and above had received a second dose of the jab.
Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
