Should toddlers be vaccinated against Covid-19?

  Should toddlers be vaccinated against Covid-19? Nicky Byers, 12, from Kentucky received the Modena Covid-19 jab as part of a clinical trial to assess the effectiveness of vaccinating children to reduce community infection.The turnaround is all down to the astonishing success of the Covid vaccine rollout, with nearly two-thirds of the adult population now protected. There is ‘nothing in the data to delay’ the continued easing of lockdown, the Prime Minister said last week.

Here is Monday’s update of Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in England.

The figures, for the seven days to April 8, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Data for the most recent four days (April 9-12) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 30 (10%) have seen a rise in case rates, 280 (89%) have seen a fall and five are unchanged.

Loneliness during pandemic ‘greater in areas with more young people’

  Loneliness during pandemic ‘greater in areas with more young people’ Higher rates of loneliness reported by young people are particularly associated with urban areas outside London.People in areas with higher crime rates or with higher levels of anxiety were also more likely to report feeling lonely.

Mansfield in Nottinghamshire continues to have the highest rate in England, with 114 new cases recorded in the seven days to April 8 – the equivalent of 104.3 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 91.5 per 100,000 in the seven days to April 1.

Corby in Northamptonshire has the second highest rate, down from 163.4 to 102.5, with 74 new cases.

Barnsley has the third highest rate, down from 111.4 to 95.2, with 235 new cases.

The five areas with the biggest week-on-week rise are:

Mansfield (up from 91.5 to 104.3)

Ryedale (7.2 to 19.9)

Castle Point (14.4 to 24.3)

North East Derbyshire (36.5 to 45.3)

Harlow (13.8 to 21.8)
