COVID this week

The number of COVID cases in Weston continued to climb this week, to 23 in the past 21 days. That is up from 19 this time last week.

On the one hand, 23 is well down from the peak. On the other hand, it is a little concerning because around this time last year—after the first wave had crested—we had only 12 cases. COVID surged again once the weather worsened.

COVID this week

The number of COVID cases in the past 21 days increased by 72% this week—a large jump that, though it is from a small number, is not encouraging.

19 people in Weston contracted COVID in the past 21 days. This time last week, 11 had.

Large percentile movements should be taken with a grain of salt (for example, going from one case to three is a 200% increase, but hardly worrying).

That understanding should be balanced against the fact that we remain among the worst-affected neighbourhoods (5th out of 140). We also have among the lowest vaccination rates (133 out of 140).
