Where is Swale in Kent? Area with new highest COVID levels confirmed | UK | News (Reports)


Swale’s infection rate currently stands at 654.3 per 100,000 people, due in part to incompatibility of the measures with more “deprived” areas, officials said.

During a virtual meeting last week, Andrew Scott-Clark, Kent County Council’s public health director, explained the mechanisms at play with the latest outbreak.

He said the “majority of transmission” happened in public rather than in isolated areas such as care or custodial settings.

Higher transmission has happened where people cannot afford to self-isolate and must continue to work.
