Covid cases in Catterick Garrison push Richmondshire rate back up

Further cases of Covid-19 in the Catterick Garrison area have pushed the rate of positive tests back up in Richmondshire.

At 32 confirmed cases, the seven-day rate in the district reached its lowest point since September on March 8.

However, it has since jumped back up and now stands at 91 in the seven days to March 13.

This is the highest rate in North Yorkshire.

In that time, there were 49 new cases of the virus in the district — an average of seven a day.

Government data for the location of the positive tests is only currently available in the seven days up until March 10.

However, this does record 20 cases in Catterick Garrison and Colburn, with the area having the highest number of positive tests in North Yorkshire.

A further six cases were reported in Catterick Village and Brompton-on-Swale.

  1. I personally feel its because of idiots that don’t have any consideration for other people,ie going into each other’s homes when you clearly cannot unless a person lives alone,if you do then you are clearly breaking the law,also entering gardens is not allowed either and idiots not wearing masks or social distancing.They don’t consider people whom have underlying health conditions either and those whom have had their first dose of the vaccination think that they are invisible and can carry on as normal,you cannot do that,nor can you once you have had your second vaccination,the rules still apply even to the selfish inconsiderate morons whom dont even care for themselves never mind other’s.The vaccination doesn’t prevent you from getting covid19,it lowers your chances of getting it.So please people think about your actions,you must all use your common sense and not listen to and be Influenced by members of your family and friends who are obviously wrong in what they are saying to you all.The rates of infection will only increase and will then prevent you all from doing what you enjoy,so think on.The police should have more powers to approach people and prevent people from entering each other’s homes etc,as I have seen clear evidence where I live and people whom I know are relying on old information,educate yourselves please,be responsible and adults and not disobedient children,in other words grow up!
