The number of coronavirus cases in Manchester has risen by 640 this weekend, official figures show.

The number of coronavirus cases in Manchester has risen by 640 this weekend, official figures show.

A total of 94,694 people were confirmed to have tested positive for Covid-19 in Manchester when the UK’s coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on October 25 (Monday), up from 94,054 on Friday.

The infection rate in Manchester now stands at 17,039 cases per 100,000 people, much higher than the UK average of 13,254.

In the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 119,825 to 8,809,774 during the period.

The figure does not include cases reported in Wales on Monday, due to a technical problem at Public Health Wales.

However, no new deaths from the coronavirus have been recorded in Manchester this weekend.

The dashboard shows that 1,089 people had died in the area on October 25 (Monday), unchanged from Friday.

It means there have been four deaths in the past week, which is an increase from three the week before.

They were among 19,681 deaths recorded in the Northwest.

The figures include everyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose habitual residence was in Manchester.

The daily death rates are revised every day with each case revised retroactively to the actual date of death, so in some areas, their numbers may be revised downwards.

Numbers reported on a Monday are likely to be lower due to a delay in reporting deaths over the weekend.

The figures also show that more than half of people in Manchester have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The latest figures show that 317,145 people had received both shots on October 24 (Sunday) – 55% of those aged 12 and older, based on the number of people in the National Immunization Service database.

Across England, 79% of people aged 12 and over had received a second dose of the shot.

Unlike at the local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
