·14-min read

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

The figures, for the seven days to February 15, 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 (February 16-19) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.
