The rate for Manchester as a whole is now 544. On 17 May the rate was 43.
Levenshulme was designated a High Risk Area on 20 May and the Director of Public Health said action was needed to avoid rates getting to 300 as they were in Bolton at that point. There was a two to three week window of opportunity with it being a “race against time” to prevent a rise in infection rates.
Since then the government also designated Greater Manchester and much of the North West of England an Enhanced Response Area on 8 June with people told to get tested twice a week. An update on ERA status is available HERE.
As of 1 July 61.2% of adults have had one vaccination and 39.4% have had two vaccinations in Manchester.
You can read the full government announcement from 5 July 2021 HERE
Manchester will be the same as all of England on 19 July with pretty much all restrictions and rules used to protect people removed.
Protect Yourself and others
Please get vaccinated for your own protection and for the protection of our community.
Protective measures such as face masks and social distancing may not be compulsory from 19 July but it is advisable to remain cautious during this third wave of infections.
Check the Manchester City Council website for updates including pop-up vaccination centres HERE
The closest pop-up vaccination centre is currently at Belle Vue with a free shuttle bus running through Levenshulme with a pick up point on Matthews Lane.
The government is building several new hospitals across the UK to cope with the demand placed on the NHS because of the Covid19 crisis. The Manchester “Nightingale” hospital is being contracted in the Manchester Central Convention Complex (formerly known as the G-Mex).
