The 11 postcodes with the worst covid infection rates that could decide Stoke-on-Trent’s new tier as decision due today


These are the 11 postcodes that could decide Stoke-on-Trent’s tier level as a decision is due to be announced today.

An interactive map – which is released by the Government – shows Covid-19 infection rates have stabilised in the city although there are pockets where cases remain high.

It reveals that Tunstall currently has the highest infection rate at 519.4  per 100,000 residents with 40 new cases in the seven days to Christmas Eve.

Dr Paul Edmondson-Jones – the city’s top health boss – believes the Potteries has done enough to remain in Tier 3.

The final decision lies with the Government with Stoke-on-Trent City Council having no right of appeal.

There is also a chance that the current system could be scrapped in favour of a national lockdown or a new tougher Tier 5 brought in.

Dr Edmondson-Jones said: “Personally I think it would be a shame after all the hard work by residents of Stoke-on-Trent in recent weeks to drive down the rates if we were not able to stay in Tier 3 but ministers will need to look at the greater national picture.”

Boris Johnson met  with senior ministers last night to decide which areas of England should face tougher coronavirus restrictions.

It comes amid suggestions some areas could be plunged into a new tier five lockdown while millions more people could find themselves living under tier four rules in the new year.

The new measures are set to be announced by Health Secretary Matt Hancock in the House of Commons, immediately after a vote on the Brexit trade deal.

It will be the third crackdown in little more than a week, after tighter curbs were introduced shortly before Christmas Eve and then again on Boxing Day.

Infection rates are one of the key indicators in deciding tier levels.

The  Public Health England map is colour-coded from white – where the virus is being suppressed – through to green where cases are low and then through gradually darker shades of blue as the numbers increase and finally to a claret colour.

Here StokeonTrentLive takes a look at the Stoke-on-Trent neighbourhoods with the worst infection rates in the seven days ending on December 24.
