Local COVID-19 data

  • Blackpool COVID-19 figures

    The full weekly Blackpool coronavirus statistics are published each week and are available on the Blackpool JSNA website

    • To date (13 March 2022) there have been 44,639 confirmed cases in Blackpool since the outbreak began.
    • This is roughly equal to 320 people out of every 1,000 that live in the town.
    • Since the pandemic began, approximately 5.7% of all cases to date are reinfections. For those testing positive in 2022, approx. 13% of cases are reinfections.
    • In the 7 days to the 6 March, 491 residents tested positive for COVID-19, which represents a weekly rate of 354.8 per 100,000 residents.
    • In the week ending 2 March, 7.6% of tests taken by residents in Blackpool were positive.
    • As at 11 March 2022, 108,414 people in Blackpool had at least one dose of the vaccine.
    • 9% of Blackpool residents aged 12+ have now received at least one dose of vaccine (75.2% have received two doses and 57.9% three doses).
    • In the period up to 5 March 2022, 578 residents of Blackpool have COVID-19 recorded on their death certificate

    To date, any repeat tests for individuals since pandemic onset have been deduplicated in updated figures. As the likelihood of individuals having multiple tests increases, test count and rate will now only be deduplicated across a narrower 7-day window. The main changes for reports produced by Public Health England Outbreak Surveillance Team will be for positivity (likely decrease but unchanged trend) and total tests reported (increase).)

  • Outbreak management plan

    As part of the gradual relaxation of lockdown measures, a new NHS Test and Trace service was launched on 28 May 2020 across England with the aim to help identify, contain and control coronavirus, reduce the spread of the virus and save lives.

    Effective and timely contact tracing will need to be implemented to allow a sustained reduction in new cases and outbreaks and reduce transmission. This will be achieved through a Department of Health and Social Care led integrated programme that consists of a proximity alerting app, web-based and telephone-based contact tracing service and optimised testing arrangements.

    Blackpool Council's public health team have published a detailed outbreak management plan for this process
