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

Ian Jones, PA
·17-min read

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

The figures, for the seven days to December 19, 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 20-23) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 282 (90%) have seen a rise in case rates, 30 (10%) have seen a fall and three are unchanged.

Thurrock in Essex continues to have the highest rate in England, with 2,253 new cases recorded in the seven days to December 19 – the equivalent of 1292.3 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up steeply from 608.0 in the seven days to December 12.

Havering in London has the second highest rate, up from 656.1 to 1227.1, with 3,185 new cases.

Brentwood in Essex is in third place, where the rate has risen from 501.2 to 1208.8, with 931 new cases.

Aside from Thurrock and Brentwood, the areas with the biggest week-on-week jumps are Rochford (up from 381.1 to 1099.9, with 961 new cases); Castle Point (up from 412.7 to 1082.1, with 978 new cases); and Epping Forest (up from 557.4 to 1200.6, with 1,581 new cases).
