Latest weekly Covid-19 rates for local authority areas in England

·14-min read

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

The figures, for the seven days to April 16, 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 17-20) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 111 (35%) have seen a rise in rates, 196 (62%) have seen a fall and eight are unchanged.

Luton continues to have the highest rate, with 181 new cases in the seven days to April 16 – the equivalent of 85 cases per 100,000 people.

This is down very slightly from 87.8 in the seven days to April 9.

Doncaster has the second highest rate, down slightly from 82.4 to 77.9, with 243 new cases.
