Covid cases falling after rocketing to a regional high in villages

CONFIRMED cases of Covid-19 are beginning to fall in a part of the Staffordshire Moorlands after rocketing to the highest rate in the West Midlands.

The spreading virus a fortnight ago resulted in local pop-up centres being set up to test worried villagers in neighbouring Blythe Bridge, Forsbrook and Caverswall.

Local Staffordshire County councillor, Ross Ward outlined the spike in virus cases at a virtual meeting of Forsbrook Parish Council on Monday (Nov 16).

He told parish councillors: “We managed 855 cases per 1000,000 which was extraordinarily high.

“There were a lot of asymptomatic cases at the pop-up test centres, which were set up as part of the county council’s response".

On Thursday (Nov 19) a community testing facility was set up in the Staffordshire Moorlands village of Werrington.
