Bridlington Still One of The East Riding's Covid Safest

Saturday, January 15th, 2022 9:45am

By Joe Gerrard, Local Democracy Reporting Service

Bridlington North and Bempton rank as having the second-lowest Covid rate in the East Riding.

The Government’s latest rolling figures, updated on Friday, show the number of infections recorded across the East Riding was 6,068, in the seven days up to Sunday, January 9, the latest with weekly data available.

The latest Wellcome Sanger Institute data shows Omicron accounts for up to 97.8 per cent in the East Riding.

The figures come as 99,652 new coronavirus cases and 270 deaths were recorded nationally in the last 24 hours up to Friday, down from 109,133 and 335 respectively on Thursday.

They also come as the UK’s gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 0.7 per cent compared to February 2020, meaning it is now larger than when the pandemic began but concerns remain recent Omicron surges could be a drag on recovery.
