Stoke-on-Trent’s top health boss has issued a plea for families to follow the coronavirus restrictions.
Dr Paul Edmondson-Jones, the director of adult social care, health and integration at Stoke-on-Trent City Council has taken to social media after the city recorded 302 positive coronavirus tests in a day.
Nationally there were 33,470 positive Covid-19 cases today (November 12).
There have now been 1,129 positive results in the last seven days across Stoke-on-Trent meaning the seven day rate is now 479.4 cases per 100,000 people.
Families are now being told to follow the current guidance and make sure they socially distance.
Dr Edmondson-Jones tweeted: “We need to follow existing guidance. Stay at home unless it’s essential – I’m staggered how many people appear to be out and about.
“Follow Hands-face-space. I’m staggered how many people don’t wear a mask and certainly don’t keep socially distanced.”
