LATEST BREAKDOWN OF COVID-19 CASES BY AGE REVEALED – WITH 934 CASES TO DATE

Published at:

In the last 2 weeks, the number of children aged between 0 and 4 to have tested positive for coronavirus on the Isle of Wight has tripled.

Latest figures have broken down the age ranges of COVID-19 cases confirmed on the Island by specimen date and show more cases have been found in those under 60 than above – a contributing factor to the Isle of Wight being placed into Tier 1 restrictions.

A shift around in the data, however, means the dates some cases were recorded has changed and were reconsigned — leading to a day in November when the registered number of COVID cases on the Island actually dropped.

No reason has been given for the rearranging of data but it has meant the statistics, published by the government’s coronavirus dashboard, varied from that which had already been published.

The new data provided shows between 7th – 20th November, 155 cases were confirmed in those aged 0 to 59, almost 3 times more cases than in those aged 60 and above, where only 53 cases were recorded.

In all of the cases from March to 20th November, there have been 204 more cases in the under 60s age group. With only 365 in those aged 60+.

During the lockdown period, schools have had to continually ask pupils to self-isolate if they had come into contact with a confirmed case but figures show in the 2 weeks that followed the start of the second lockdown only 24 positive cases were found in school-aged children, 5 to 19.

In children aged 0 to 4, the number jumped from 3 to 9 in 2 weeks.

24 more cases were found in those aged between 20 and 24, equating to nearly a third of the cases in that age group for the entire pandemic. It is also the age range with the most recorded cases on the Island.

The second highest age group for COVID-19 cases is those aged between 50 and 54, with 72 cases overall but 19 confirmed in the 2-week timeframe.

In those aged 80 and over, only 8 cases have been recorded in the last 2 weeks.

It’s because their tests cannot differentiate between any coronavirus and there are always many more colds and flus around at this time of year which comes up as a positive, and the actual “covid19” virus has NEVER been isolated in a human.The whole country bar us and Cornwall are in some sort of lockdown.There have been no more deaths this year than last year so there cannot be a true pandemic as there would be thousands more,it seems more as every death is put as covid to keep the numbers and fear up so as to install more lockdowns or… Read more »

Evidence of what I suspected all along. Deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia, have been rebranded as deaths due to COVID-19. COVID-19 “death” surplus mirrors the deficit in other diseases.They are lying to you !!!

Unlucky for you judgemental twoddle, if that’s even an English word. I have no soical media whatsoever, so stop jumping to conclusions yourself and read some real facts like we clearly do! Open your eyes and get off mainstream Media who lie constantly. A 99.9% survival rate is nothing to be fearful of!

Need to be stricter with the ferries and stop people coming here from the mainland upper tiers, if you don’t have a recent utility bill with an Island address on it then you shouldn’t be allowed to board the boat.

Sadly any Printer can print a false piece of paper saying anything now.

Many will suffer here and so close to a vaccine too. Like being shot on the last day of the war.

PCR false positives responsible for the potential mislabelling of deaths due to other causes as COVID deaths? Very strong evidence of volume of testing driving the positivity rate from the beginning of Sept, exactly the point when Autumn COVID-labelled deaths began to rise…

Does anyone know if the the 20 to 24 age group includes students living away from the island as well as people actually on here?
