This is where coronavirus is rising fast across Birmingham – full ward by ward list

The number of people catching coronavirus in Birmingham and the rest of the West Midlands is still on the march, nearly a fortnight into the second lockdown.

There were some 3,833 cases in the seven days up to November 13 in Birmingham – representing an infection rate of 337.6 per 100,000 people.

Around 16% of all people tested in the community are being found to be positive.

Worryingly, some hotspot areas in the city saw cases double compared to the week before.

That is a huge cause of concern for community leaders, worried that vital health messages are still being ignored.

One councillor, Waseem Zaffar, who represents Lozells, has responded by calling an urgent ward forum meeting and contacting faith, school and community representatives to urge them to double down on efforts to protect families.

The event on Thursday evening, 6pm to 7pm, will take place virtually, with a public health representative on hand to answer questions. Click here on the night to join the forum.

His ward, Lozells, has seen cases go up 64% in a week, with 77 new cases.

Next door Birchfield has seen an even bigger rise, with cases up 97%, with 69 new cases.

“We clearly still have an issue,” said Cllr Zaffar.

“We need everyone, from GP surgeries, schools, faith leaders and so on, to get the message out.”

He said he was alarmed to hear and see that some families and businesses were still not adhering to strict guidelines and safety rules.

“In the last 24 hours I’ve had quite a few people contact me about businesses that should not be open, that are not essential; and about essential businesses that are open but are not following the Covid guidelines.

“People have become a bit slack compared to the summer, I know it is is really difficult, but businesses need to ensure social distancing is taking place, that there are not too many people in at one time, that they are cleaning thoroughly, and sanitisers available, and people wear masks.

“I am hearing international money exchanges are open in Lozells Road, that is not good and is not acceptable.

“I absolutely appreciate that 2020 has been awful and I really feel for businesses, especially the small family businesses where people are hand to mouth and really struggling, but nobody should be risking themselves and the wider community.”

He added that he understood that the continued opening of schools and universities, and a wider list of essential shops, had created a ‘mixed message’ about the lockdown, but that made it more vital that people followed the rules, not less.

Local hospitals continue to be swamped with new coronavirus admissions – up to 60 every day at University Hospitals Birmingham alone – as the horrific progress of the virus continues to lead to serious illness and deaths.

The citywide case rate for the seven days from November 7 to November 13 – the first full week since lockdown mark 2 – is now 337.6. The previous week, it was 287.4.

In an update to councillors and MPs, Birmingham City Council said the spread continued to be “primarily occurring through social interactions.”

But there are increasing numbers of cases in care homes and workplaces.

Single cases continue to be reported in schools, triggering isolation for thousands of youngsters.

A graph, below, shows the breakdown of cases by age groups and gender.

It shows more cases among women than men, and the age groups with most cases.
