Elmbridge COVID Champions Briefing

(week commencing 25 January 2021)


Local updates

Elmbridge now has the 2nd lowest case rates in Surrey and case numbers are much lower than the Surrey average – numbers are falling across Surrey’s 11 boroughs (last week Elmbridge had the 2nd lowest rates).

Surrey case rates are now below the national average but hospital beds are still very limited – when case numbers fall, there is usually a delay of about two weeks before admission rates stop rising.

Surrey’s data dashboard shows which areas have highest rates across Surrey and compares these to England.
