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

·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 15, 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 16-19) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 117 (37%) have seen a rise in case rates, 186 (59%) have seen a fall and 12 are unchanged.

Luton has the highest rate in England, with 195 new cases recorded in the seven days to April 15 – the equivalent of 91.5 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up slightly from 84.5 cases per 100,000 in the seven days to April 8.

Doncaster has the second highest rate, up very slightly from 79.2 to 80.5, with 251 new cases.

Bradford has the third highest rate, down slightly from 84.5 to 74.1, with 400 new cases.
