·14-min read

Here is Monday’s update of Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in England.

The figures, for the seven days to April 22, are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test, by specimen date.

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Data for the most recent four days (April 23-26) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 149 (47%) have seen a rise in rates, 150 (48%) have seen a fall and 16 are unchanged.

This is up from 48.6 in the seven days to April 15, the largest increase in the country.
