East Sussex confirmed cases

Updated 6th May 2021

Confirmed cases

Previous graphs have zoomed in on a shorter timeframe to better focus on the peak of cases over the winter months. Figure 1 zooms back out to show cases since the start of the pandemic. We can see that the first wave during springtime 2020 was dwarfed by the subsequent wave experienced over the winter months. When looking at that winter peak it is helpful to note that the data does not show a smooth upwards trajectory. There are several points at which we could have assumed that rates were declining only to then suffer a sharp and unexpected increase.

Trends

Age and sex graphs have not been included for each District and Borough as case numbers are too low to reach any meaningful conclusions. Grouping the data up to show cases by age and sex across East Sussex (see figure 2) shows a continued predominance of cases in the 10–19 age band. Other age bands in the working age range are close behind (other than the almost absent 20–29 age band).
