299 further coronavirus cases in Crawley
The number of coronavirus cases in Crawley increased by 299 over the weekend, official figures show.
A total of 17,992 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in Crawley when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on November 29 (Monday), up from 17,693 on Friday.
The rate of infection in Crawley now stands at 15,997 cases per 100,000 people, higher than the England average of 15,278.
Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 118,218 over the period, to 10,189,059.
However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded over the weekend in Crawley.
The dashboard shows 218 people had died in the area by November 29 (Monday) – which was unchanged from Friday.
It means there have been no deaths in the past week, which is a decrease on two the previous week.
They were among 18,737 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.
Figures reported on a Monday are likely to be lower as a result of a lag in reporting deaths over the weekend.
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 75,867 people had received both jabs by November 28 (Sunday) – 72% 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.
