Major concern as Covid-19 figure rises in Liverpool

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson and Director of Public Health, Matt Ashton are urging people to stay Covid-19 safe following a worrying rise in cases in the city.

Latest figures show that the rate per 100,000 is 106.4 – and in just one week (7-13 September) there were 530 positive cases.

If the rate continues to rise at this level, it is expected that new restrictive measures will be enforced across the city.

People are being advised to follow the simple guidelines to keep themselves, and those around them, safe:

  • Wash hands regularly
  • Wear a face covering when out and about (unless medically exempt)
  • Maintain social distancing at all times
  • Avoid businesses/venues which are not implementing covid-safe guidelines

Public health chiefs are also advising people to only get tested if they have symptoms of the virus. These are:

  • A high temperature
  • A new or continuous cough
  • A change or loss of sense of smell or taste

Mayor Joe Anderson said: “We are in a really critical time and as a city, and a community, we have to do the right thing.

“Even at this stage we need to take responsibility and we could potentially avoid going in to lockdown or reduce the amount of time we’re in lockdown for.

“The advice is simple to follow and just by washing our hands, keeping our distance, wearing face coverings, and avoiding non-covid safe businesses, we could turn the tide on the number of positive cases.

“We all have a part to play here so I urge everyone to work together to protect our family, our friends and our city.”
