The Sue Gray report clearly shows that the Prime Minister has presided over a widespread culture of disregard for coronavirus regulations. Furthermore, questions are now being raised about whether the Prime Minister misled Parliament when asked about these events. Talking to constituents, it is clear discussions about parties in Downing Street remain a damaging distraction

Local Coronavirus Update

April 23, 2021

This is my first coronavirus update since non-essential retail reopened and hospitality businesses could open outdoors. It is great to see York with a renewed buzz and that the overwhelming majority of residents are enjoying the return of pubs, cafes and restaurants responsibly. While we may be enjoying a coffee or a pint outside with a friend, activity at our vaccination centres have certainly not slowed down as April is living up to its nickname of the month of second doses.

In the Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership, which stretches across North Yorkshire to North Lincolnshire, 1,215,864 doses had been administered as of Monday. In York, 54.7% of the adult population has now received a first dose and 18.7% of the adult population are fully vaccinated having received two doses (as of April 20).

Nationally, one in five adults have now received two doses of a Covid vaccine with 83% of those 80+, 79% of those 75-79, 43% of those 70-74, 81% of frontline health workers and 48% of those clinically extremely vulnerable fully protected as of April 18.

This incredible progress has managed to reduce symptomatic Covid infections by up to 90% leading Sarah Walker, Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at Oxford and Chief Investigator on the Office for National Statistics Covid-19 Infection Survey, to declare that Britain has now moved from a pandemic to an endemic situation.

In York our case rate remains low and nationally every NHS region has recorded days without a single covid death.

If you are over 45, you get a Carer’s Allowance, get support following an assessment by your local authority, your GP record shows you are a carer, you have a learning disability or you are classed as clinically vulnerable, then you can book a vaccine appointment online: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
