NEWS ROUNDUP: North East coronavirus increase & healthy life expectancy for women in Durham falls

 

North East coronavirus increase in 30 postcodes and healthy life expectancy for women in Durham falls.

Coronavirus cases are increasing in 30 postcodes in the North East. North Gosforth and Chilton are two of the worst affected areas. In general, cases across the region do remain low and are at their lowest levels since last summer, but people are being warned to keep sticking to the safety guidelines that are in place.

Healthy life expectancy
The healthy life expectancy for women in Durham has fallen, with health experts claiming to be unsure of why this is. A healthy life expectancy is how long a person can expect to live without medical issues seriously affecting their lives. For women in County Durham this has fallen from 58.4 years to 58.3 years. It is currently unclear why.
Local elections 
Councils across the region are preparing for the local elections on the 6th of May. Voters who haven't opted to vote by post are being asked to stick to the strict coronavirus safety guidelines that will be in place at the polling stations.
