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

Ian Jones, PA
·14-min read

Here is Wednesday’s update of the rolling seven-day rate of new cases of Covid-19 for every local authority in England.

The figures, for the seven days to August 9, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

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

Data for the most recent three days (August 10-12) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

Oldham has the highest rate, jumping from 62 cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to August 2 to 104.6 in the seven days to August 9. A total of 248 new cases have been recorded.

In Pendle, the rate has risen from 66.2 to 82.5, with 76 new cases.

Blackburn with Darwen is third, where the rate has fallen from 83.5 to 73.5, with 110 new cases.

Leicester has seen a rise from 56.7 to 68.9, with 244 new cases.
