62 further coronavirus cases in Crawley, official figures show
The number of coronavirus cases in Crawley increased by 62 in the last 24 hours, official figures show.
A total of 11,111 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in Crawley when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on August 18 (Wednesday), up from 11,049 on Tuesday.
The rate of infection in Crawley now stands at 9,879 cases per 100,000 people, higher than the England average of 9,814.
Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 33,646 over the period, to 6,355,887.
However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded in the latest 24-hour period in Crawley.
The dashboard shows 204 people had died in the area by August 18 (Wednesday) – which was unchanged from Tuesday.
It means there has been one death in the past week, which is an increase on none the previous week.
They were among 17,557 deaths recorded across the South East.
The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Crawley.
Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.
The figures also show that two-thirds of people in Crawley have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The latest figures show 65,334 people had received both jabs by August 17 (Tuesday) – 67% of those aged 18 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
Across England, 77% of people aged 18 and above had received a second dose of the jab.
Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
