Rising Covid-19 cases across the county

The county council's director of public health says it needs everyone in Leicestershire to be 'extra vigilant' to control the spread of coronavirus as the latest figures show a rising number of cases across the county.

Data published by the council today shows that, for the week ending 10th October, every district in the county now has rates of over 100 cases for every 100,000 people.

Rates for Oadby & Wigston (178.8 cases per 100,000 population) and Charnwood (154.4 per 100,000) are also above the national average of 150.1 per 100,000. More »

Mike Sandys said: "We've got cases rising everywhere in the county, and we now know that, based on the most recent data over the past few days, Charnwood has the highest rate.

"However, our drive is no longer around highlighting 'hot-spots' and targeting specific parts of Leicestershire – this is now around everyone being extra vigilant.

"We need to work together to control the virus – that's through social distancing, wearing a face mask and washing your hands.

"It's also about encouraging people, whether they're on the school run, travelling to work or education, in the office or going out for a drink, to change their behaviour."

The latest data also shows that higher infection rates are now being seen in young people aged 16 to 24.

Councillor Jonathan Morgan, Leader of Charnwood Borough Council, said: The increase in the number of cases is very concerning and should serve as a stark reminder to everyone in the borough that we cannot switch off and that we all have a role to play in tackling this pandemic.

"We'll continue to work with Leicestershire County Council, Public Health England, and other agencies to help keep our communities safe. We will also continue to support the university which has taken significant steps to minimise transmission of the virus and protect students, staff and local communities."

District breakdown:

• Hinckley and Bosworth - 101.4 per 100,000 population
• Melton – 101.8 per 100,000 population
• North West Leicestershire – 101.8 per 100,000 population
• Blaby – 117.5 per 100,000 population
• Harborough – 117.8 per 100,000 population

• Charnwood - 154.4 per 100,000 population
• Oadby and Wigston – 178.8 per 100,000 population

The county council, along with the NHS, local authorities, Leicestershire Police, universities and LeicesterShire and Rutland Sport, last week launched a new 'it's down to us' campaign.

The campaign includes:
• Posters and banners for pubs – reminding customers to wear a face covering
• 'Shop safe' posters for businesses
• Posters for sports clubs
• Social media posts urging parents to take care at the school gates

Electric Vehicle Charging points coming to Blaby District


Charging points coming to district

24 electric vehicle charging bays will be installed across the district after securing £77,000 in grant funding.

The project is hoped to be completed by spring 2021 and forms part of Blaby District Council's commitment to developing a comprehensive electric vehicle charging infrastructure, a key point in the Council's Carbon Neutral Action Plan.

£77,000 in funding for the project has come from the Office of Low Emission Vehicles and their On-street residential chargepoint scheme. The rest of the funding will come from Electric Blue Ltd, who will oversee and manage the installation of the chargers. More »

The twelve 7kw twin chargers will be placed in car parks across the district to increase Council's car park offering and ensure electric vehicles are accessible to all, especially residents who may not have the access to a charging point at home.

Charging points will be located in:

  • Leicester Road, Narborough
  • Weavers Court, Narborough
  • Enderby Road, Blaby

Councillor Sharon Coe, Portfolio Holder for Health, Wellbeing and Regulatory Services, said: "This funding is a brilliant first step on our ambitious plans to see the District of Blaby become carbon neutral by 2050.

"The rise of electric vehicles on our roads is increasing rapidly. We want to ensure that charging electric vehicles is accessible to as many people as possible, this includes residents who would usually struggle to access charging points where they live.

"We hope that this scheme encourages more people make the switch to electric vehicles, which will reduce carbon emissions, traffic noise and improve our air quality."
