Where Covid cases are going UP and DOWN across County Durham

THE Covid infection rate across the majority of County Durham is showing a downwards trend – but some areas have seen a rise in the past week.

Latest Public Health England data, published last night, has shown what the picture across the entire county looks like.

The figures show the number of new cases reported in the seven days to November 29, compared to the previous week.

Some postcode areas in parts of Durham City, Chester-le-Street and East Durham have recorded among the highest number of new cases.

Meanwhile areas such as Bishop Auckland, Newton Aycliffe and Consett have continued to see a fall in the infection rates.
