NEWS ROUNDUP: Covid infection rate & praise for vaccine rollout

 

The weekly coronavirus infection rate has increased in five of the seven council areas in the North East.

Newcastle and Gateshead are the two areas to have seen the rate fall. The increase is believed to be related to children returning to schools and health bosses have said that community transmission remains low.

Praise for vaccine effort

South Tyneside Council has praised the work of health staff and volunteers as half of the Borough’s adult population receive the vaccine. More than 64,000  people have had at least one dose of the vaccine, with many in the most vulnerable groups now receiving invitations for their second dose.
