4This new Government heat map shows how coronavirus cases are spreading from the young to the older, more vulnerable age groups

It comes after data from Public Health England (PHE) revealed that cases of Covid-19 have soared among people in their 40s and 50s over the last two weeks.

The new data, published today on the Prime Minister's official Twitter account, is based on data from July 19 to September 6 and shows the weekly average number of new lab-confirmed Covid-19 positive tests per 100,000 in England.

The darker purple shading shows which age groups have the highest rates of infection - with those aged 20 to 29 worst-hit at 46.0 per 100,000 cases.

People aged 30 to 39 are the next highest with 29.8 cases per 100,000 followed by those 40 to 49 at 23.4 cases per 100,000.

It suggests that cases are spreading to older age groups who may be more vulnerable to the virus.

The chart is also in line with the figures released by PHE on Friday which shows that infections have risen by 90 per cent in middle aged people.

For every 100,000 people aged between 40 and 49, 23.4 cases are diagnosed, which is up from 12.4 at the end of August.

Infection rates for those in their 50s have also doubled in the last week, climbing from 10.9 to 20.

Test chaos

The growing number of cases comes as people across the country scramble to get a test.

Many people have struggled to get tested for the virus and it was reported last week that some were having to drive hundreds of miles to access tests.

Meanwhile, a glitch in the testing system also revealed that people in London could get a test faster if they said they were from Aberdeen in Scotland.

Yesterday it was reported that another 3,105 people had tested positive for the virus, with 27 people having lost their lives to the deadly bug as the UK's grim tally rose to 41,664.

On Friday it was also reported that 3,539 cases had been reported overnight, commenting on the increase on Friday, Yvonne Doyle, Medical Director at PHE said: "Most of these cases are people tested in the community.

“Although younger people continue to make up the greatest share of new cases, we’re now starting to see worrying signs of infections occurring in the elderly, who are at far higher risk of getting seriously ill.

“This is a reminder of the ongoing risk as the virus spreads throughout the UK. People should continue to follow social distancing rules, wash their hands regularly and wear a face covering in enclosed spaces. You should not mix with others when unwell.”

'Affluent young'

The data from PHE also showed that cases numbers have risen most dramatically in people in their 20s.

Health secretary Matt Hancock had previously blamed the "affluent young" for a rise in case numbers.

He said people between 17-21 have a problem adhering to social distancing rules.

There is a risk that people in these age groups have passed infections onto their parents or carers - who are likely to be in their 40s and 50s.

The PHE data showed that the infection rate for people in their 30s is also up.

It has jumped from 19.6 last week to 29.8 this week.

For people aged 40 to 49, it has jumped from 13.5 to 23.4.

For those in their 50s it has climbed from 10.9 to 20 and for those in their sixties it has gone from 7.5 to 12.4.

Rates in those most vulnerable to the virus - those over 70, have gone from 4.6 to 7.3 and for those in their 80s it has gone from 8.9 to 12.9.

While kids have now returned back to the classroom, many parents have being trying to secure coronavirus tests from them.

Experts have previously said that kids have different symptoms of the virus, but are not super spreaders.

The data from PHE stated that cases in kids up to the age of four has risen from 5.6 to 7.7 while kids aged 10 to 19 cases have gone from 5.1 to 8.1.

Hospital admissions

Another factor that indicates the severity of the pandemic is hospital admissions.

Data from the government suggests that these have more than doubled in the last ten days.

The data - which is available on the government's website, revealed that more than 150 patients had been infected with the virus and required treatment.

This is up from a seven day rolling average of 52 on August 31.

Data from the department of health showed that just 85 patients were admitted to hospital with the virus last Sunday.

The latest figures from PHE come as experts claim a second wave of the virus "won't be as bad as the first".

Officials claim that while cases are on the rise in the UK, the curve will be flatter compared to the start and the peak of the pandemic in March and April.

It comes after the Office for National Statistics yesterday revealed that influenza and pneumonia is still killing ten times more people in England than Covid-19.

The latest data from the ONS revealed that deaths from coronavirus fell below 100 for the first time since March.

The Daily Mail reported that government officials believe that social distancing, combined with local lockdowns, will see a reduction in both deaths and case numbers.

Areas such as Newcastle, Leeds and Merseyside have all been added to the government's watch list as cases climb - but the experts said that rising infection rates are "normal".

Belgium scientist Jean-Luc Gala said people should "no longer worry" about the virus and should just look at measures to curb the spread.

Speaking to La Dernière Heure he said: "The virus circulating in a category that does not suffer from it, young people will at worst have small symptoms, at best nothing at all."

He added that those who are only hit by mild symptoms would help achieve wider immunity in communities.

Chase Young already being declared out is very concerning for Washington

Chase Young is done for the day with a groin injury.

A return to Ohio didn’t go according to plan for Washington Football Team edge rusher Chase Young, who got injured in the first half of the team’s matchup with the Cleveland Browns. Young was quickly ruled out for the game with a groin issue, which is not good since the ruling from team officials came shortly after Young departed the field.

Chase Young is out with a groin injury.

— Washington Football Team (@WashingtonNFL) September 27, 2020

The no. 2 overall pick in April’s draft, Young has already had a tremendous impact on Washington’s defense, recording eight tackles and 2.5 sacks over the team’s first two games. The Football Team’s pass rush was a key factor in their comeback win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1 when they sacked Carson Wentz eight times, and Young played a big role in that performance.

A groin injury for an edge rusher is a major concern since it could take a while to heal. Even if Young is able to return quickly, he may still be playing through the issue, which could impact his performance or lead to an aggravation that could sideline him even longer.

Injuries have wreaked havoc on the early going of the NFL season as stars like Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, Nick Bosa and Michael Thomas have all gone down with various ailments. While Young’s injury doesn’t appear to be as serious as Barkley or Bosa’s, the fact that such an exciting young player could miss time is a bummer for all football fans.

In the end, Washington made the correct call to pull Young from this game to avoid the chance of him making things worse by playing through it. The Football Team goes to Baltimore next week and if they have a prayer of containing Lamar Jackson they really need to hope Young is good to go for that matchup.
