Councillor calls for action to build 'resilience’ in King's Lynn to protect people against possibility of future pandemics

A councillor has said “future resilience” needs to be built in Lynn to protect people against the possibility of pandemics in years to come.

It comes after the director of Public Health Norfolk, Dr Louise Smith, gave an outline of possible explanations as to why West Norfolk’s coronavirus infection rate was higher than neighbouring districts last week.

Dr Smith said, once the data was adjusted for age distribution and deprivation profile, it was below the average for England. She also said that the number of people with underlying health problems such as diabetes is quite high in the borough, which might contribute to people being more unwell and having a test.
