    Positive cases of Covid-19 continue upwards with a slight rise in Salford as a further 60 people test positive for the virus today (Thursday 27th), However it is not all bad news as Public Health England (PHE) estimates that 13,200 deaths have now been prevented in people aged 60 years or older in England up to 13 May 2021 (11,200 deaths in individuals aged 80 years and older, 1,700 in individuals aged 70 to 79 and 300 in individuals aged 60 to 69 years).

    As of today there is just a single patient reported as being on ventilation at Salford Royal Hospital and a further 22 admitted with the virus, additionally there were just 4 admissions between 16/05 and 23/05 and the last recorded death at the hospital was on May 9th.

    Overall things in Salford are looking fairly positive but it is vitally important to continue to abide by the social distancing rules in order to ensure that remains so. It clearly shows that vaccination is working and we would recommend anyone who is eligible and has not yet had one to come forward as the numbers speak for themselves.

    Nationally, the Government estimates also indicate that the vaccination programme has prevented around 39,700 hospitalisations in those aged 65 years and over in England (approximately 4,900 admissions in those aged 65 to 74, 15,600 in those aged 75 to 84 and 19,200 in those aged 85 and over).

    The method for analysing the approximate number of deaths and hospitalisations prevented by the vaccine programme now takes into account the impact of both first and second doses, due to more data being available. However, it does not include the impact of vaccination on transmission, therefore the true impact of the vaccination programme is likely to be even greater.

    An updated analysis including nearly 3,000 symptomatic cases of B.1.617.2 provides further confidence that 2 doses of either vaccine are highly effective against the variant first identified in India.

     

    Dr Jamie Lopez Bernal, Consultant Epidemiologist at PHE, said:

    This analysis gives further confidence that 2 doses of the vaccine provide vital protection against the variants in circulation in the UK, so it is important to book your second jab when invited, to gain maximum protection.

    The vaccines are very safe and very effective, and they will protect you and those around you from becoming seriously ill.
