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

·14-min read

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

The figures, for the seven days to January 28, 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 four days (January 29-February 1) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, four (1%) have seen a rise in case rates and 311 (99%) have seen a fall.

Knowsley in Merseyside continues to have the highest rate in England, with 922 new cases recorded in the seven days to January 28 – the equivalent of 611.2 cases per 100,000 people.

This is down from 898.2 cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to January 21.

Sandwell in the West Midlands has the second highest rate, down from 840.6 to 546.8, with 1,796 new cases.

Slough in Berkshire is in third place, down from 807.8 to 543.0, with 812 new cases.
