Covid-19 data dashboard for the Isle of Wight (External website link)

Universal COVID-19 testing ended on 31st March. This has limited our ability to interpret published data on case numbers/rates in a meaningful way, therefore from the end of April this dashboard will no longer be updated. Our Public Health team continues to review publicly available sources of information to understand the national, regional and local picture of COVID-19. We continue to work with partners in other organisations like UKHSA, NHS and other local authorities. This makes sure we're able to escalate our actions if needed.

The data used on the pages continue to be updated as follows:

Infections - Case Counts, Rates by Age and Cumulative Rates updated each weekday

Infections - Weekly Rates and England Maps updated weekly on a Thursday

Vaccinations updated weekly on a Thursday

Hospital admissions updated weekly on a Thursday/Friday

Deaths updated weekly on a Tuesday

The links to each of these data updates is on the dashboard under the 'Sources' tab. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Population health needs, risks and vulnerabilities in the context of COVID-19 (PDF, 30 pages, 2.3MB) SARS-CoV-2 is a novel virus; much remains to be understood about transmission, dynamics and effects of our population. Local knowledge and intelligence is key when interpreting localised transmission, to identify common factors early enough and prevent further spread of COVID-19. This data pack supports in this, however caution is needed when interpreting some of these data eg increasing trends may reflect increased testing, changes in recording, coding or reporting rather than a true increase in incidents. Emerging intelligence is preliminary and subject to change.
