NEWS ROUNDUP: Covid cases down & northern campus update

 

The coronavirus infection rate in the north east in general is headed in the right direction.

There is now only one area in the region that has an infection rate considered high, which is above 400 per 100,000. Cleadon Park in South Tyneside reported 24 new cases in the week up to February 19th.

The North East Chamber of Commerce is calling for the furlough scheme to be extended. The unemployment rate in the region is already higher than the national average, with concerns that this could increase when furlough ends at the end of April.
 
The leader of Stockton council has expressed his disappointment at the town not making the shortlist for the new northern treasury campus. Darlington and Newcastle are still in the running along with Leeds and Bradford. The new campus would establish almost 800 new jobs in the area.
