Coronavirus (COVID-19)—Oxford to receive further support to slow infections

The Department of Health and Social Care has announced that the city of Oxford will receive a support package following a rise in coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in the area. The package aims to slow the rate of infections temporarily while more vaccinations are deployed. As a part of the operation, the city will benefit from extra testing, logistical support to increase the rate of vaccinations and help for local campaigns.

Health Minister, Lord Bethell, has said:

‘Working closely with the local authority, we are providing a strengthened package of support in Oxford. We know this approach can work and it is based on our successful partnerships with other areas where there was a significant rise in cases. This extra support is intended to help slow the rate of infection as restrictions are lifted, allowing more people to get double jabbed.

The most important thing that people in this area can do is take a test if they are offered to do so, practise hands, face, space and fresh air, and get their jab - the vaccine is building a wall of protection around us all.’
