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

Joe Gammie, PA
·14-min read

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

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

Of the 315 local areas in England, 233 (74%) have seen a rise in case rates, 77 (24%) have seen a fall, and five are unchanged.

Thurrock in Essex has the highest rate, with 2,161 new cases recorded in the seven days to December 28 – the equivalent of 1,239.5 cases per 100,000 people.

This is down from 1,392.7 in the seven days to December 21.

Epping Forest, also in Essex, has the second highest rate, down from 1,401.0 to 1,224.1, with 1,612 new cases.

Castle Point, again in Essex, is in third place, where the rate has fallen slightly from 1,229.3 to 1,207.2, with 1,091 new cases.

The areas recording the biggest week-on-week jumps are Rushmoor (up from 529.6 to 817.1, with 773 new cases); Carlisle (up from 253.0 to 538.3, with 585 new cases); and Watford (up from 633.7 to 867.7, with 838 new cases).

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency based on Public Health England data published on January 1 on the Government’s coronavirus dashboard.
