Deaths

Two key sources about deaths from Covid-19 at LA level are ONS data and local registrar data. They are derived from the same source (civil registration data). ONS data is more comprehensive as it includes deaths of York residents which have occurred and been registered outside York. Local registrar data provides a breakdown by age and gender. For both data sources a death from Covid-19 is said to have occurred when Covid-19 has been recorded on the death certificate. The most recently available data is summarised below:

• ONS Weekly data: In the most recent period (2022 Week 42: 15.10.22 to 21.10.22) 2 Covid-19 deaths were recorded as having occurred for CYC residents. In weeks 41, 40 and 39 there had been 6, 3 and 2 deaths respectively. Please note that due to lags in death registration, weekly totals are subject to revision.

• ONS Cumulative data: Since the start of the pandemic, for deaths occurring up to 21st October 2022 and registered up to 29th October 2022, 543 Covid-19 deaths were recorded as having occurred for CYC residents (342 in hospital, 149 in care homes, 44 at home/elsewhere and 8 in a hospice). The number of deaths per 100,000 of population in York is 257 which is lower than the national average of 314

Source: ONS – Deaths registered weekly in England and Wales, provisional: week ending 21 October 2022. Released 1.11.22.

• Age / Gender breakdown (using registrar data): The average age of the CYC residents who died was 81.3, with an age range of 30-104. 76.8% of the CYC residents who died were aged 75+. 49.3% of the CYC residents who died were male.

Coronavirus York updates: 3rd November 2022

Hospitals and deaths The number of COVID-related deaths of York residents has risen to 520. The number of COVID+ patients being cared for by the York Hospital Trust has fallen to 142. This is the lowest level recorded since the 3rd October. There are two patients in the ICU.

Infection rates The number of cases in the City has fallen to 111.  Infection rates have fallen to 52.6. This is the lowest recorded since 14th September 2022. The rate is also much lower than was seen during the same period in both 2021 and 2020. 77% are first-time infections. The York infection rate is below that seen at county, regional and national levels (which are also falling) 

Neighbourhoods Four neighbourhoods now have fewer than 3 cases in each. A spike in case numbers has  brought the infection rate in Westfield/Chapelfields/Foxwood North up to 121.1

Vaccinations 59% of eligible over 50’s have now received their autumn booster jab. 

Tests The proportion of PCR tests proving to be positive stands at 8.3%. 

Trends

Coronavirus York updates: 20th October 2022

Hospitals and deaths The number of deaths of York residents from coronavirus-related cases has increased to 516. 172 COVID+ patients are being cared for by the York Hospital Trust. Two are in the ICU.

Infection rates The number of cases in the City has fallen to 232. The infection rate has fallen to 109.94 and is on a downward trend. It seems that the peak for the latest wave was reached on 7th October. The rate is markedly lower than was seen during October in both 2021 and 2020. Infection rates are also falling at national, regional and county levels. 

Neighbourhoods Infection rates are falling across the whole of York. The highest can be found in New Earswick (206.8, twelve cases). The lowest in Rawcliffe/Clifton South (12.0 in one case) 

Vaccinations 35,103 (43.6%) of 50+ autumn booster jabs have now been completed. The proportion of residents who have had their first jab continues to fall in areas like Heslington. This is thought to reflect the differing vaccination rates which can be found among first-year students.

Tests The proportion of positive PCR tests has fallen back to 14.6%. Around 200 lateral flow tests are being taken each day.

NB. The costs of testing kits vary across different chemists. The lowest we have seen is £1-75. Elsewhere some are on offer at £2.20.

Some people still qualify for free tests You may still be able to get free tests if:

  • you’re eligible for COVID-19 treatments
  • you’re being admitted to the hospital
  • you work in the NHS, for an independent healthcare provider, or in adult social care
  • your GP or healthcare professional has recently asked you to get a test

Trends

Coronavirus York updates: 6th October 2022

Hospitals and deaths The number of COVID+ hospital patients being cared for by the York Hospital Trust has risen to 157. This compares to a low of 62 seen on 20th August 2022 and is the highest recorded since April 2022. Two patients are being cared for using mechanical ventilation (ICU). There have been 4 further deaths, of York residents, during the last seven days bringing the cumulative toll up to 505. 

NB. The York Hospital Trust no longer updates the number of COVID+ patients it is caring for on its website. Until last week the figures were updated each day.

Cases and infection rates The number of cases in the City has increased to 262. This is the highest number recorded since 22/7/22. The infection rate has risen to 124.16. The trend is upwards and reflects a similar trajectory which is being seen at the county, regional and national levels. Of the detected cases, over the last 2 weeks, 76% were first infections. A similar profile was seen during the last two autumn periods.

Neighbourhoods No neighbourhood now has an infection rate below 50. The highest can be found in Huntington (22 cases, IR 323.1). The lowest can be found in Heworth South/The Groves (6 cases IR 52.7). However, since these figures date from 1st October they don’t reflect the “fresher student” peak which was noted particularly in 2020. (Freshers were very evident yesterday evening around the City centre). The proportion of residents vaccinated in wards like Heslington/University has fallen, possibly reflecting the profile of a new intake of students. 

NB. Neither York University or St Johns have updated their websites to show current levels of vaccinations, testing facilities, case numbers or advice for students when socialising. 

Vaccinations. 28% of eligible York residents have now received their autumn booster jab. The uptake is highest in the over-65 age group.

In the end, 83.4% of over 75s accepted a spring booster jab offer.

The final uptake rates in York for over 12’s were 1st dose 85%, 2nd dose 81.5%, and third or booster dose 67.8%. These vaccinations remain available.

Tests The proportion of positive PCR tests being recorded now stands at 10.6%. This figure has doubled over the last week.

Deaths

Two key sources about deaths from Covid-19 at LA level are ONS data and local registrar data. They are derived from the same source (civil registration data). ONS data is more comprehensive as it includes deaths of York residents which have occurred and been registered outside York. Local registrar data provides a breakdown by age and gender. For both data sources a death from Covid-19 is said to have occurred when Covid-19 has been recorded on the death certificate. The most recently available data is summarised below:

• ONS Weekly data: In the most recent period (2022 Week 33: 13.8.22 to 19.8.22) 0 Covid-19 deaths were recorded as having occurred for CYC residents. In weeks 32, 31 and 30 there had been 0, 0 and 2 deaths respectively. Please note that due to lags in death registration, weekly totals are subject to revision.

• ONS Cumulative data: Since the start of the pandemic, for deaths occurring up to 19thAugust 2022 and registered up to 27th August 2022, 524 Covid-19 deaths were recorded as having occurred for CYC residents (327 in hospital, 149 in care homes, 40 at home/elsewhere and 8 in a hospice). The number of deaths per 100,000 of population in York is 248 which is lower than the national average of 308
