The new strain is spreading in Greater Manchester
But rates and hospital admissions aren't yet soaring
Good evening members — as promised, this is a quick update on the latest Covid-19 data in Greater Manchester. I’m sorry that it’s a slightly bleak newsletter to be sending on New Year’s Eve, but that’s the year we’ve had. I hope it’s clear and useful.
The overall picture is that cases and hospitalisations are rising again, and the new strain is spreading in Greater Manchester, but we are not yet anywhere near the kind of numbers we saw in November.
