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

·17-min read

Here are the latest Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in England.

The figures, for the seven days to December 23, 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 24-27) 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 and 33 (10%) have seen a fall.

Brentwood in Essex has the highest rate in England, with 1,111 new cases recorded in the seven days to December 23 – the equivalent of 1,442.5 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up steeply from 886.8 in the seven days to December 16.

Epping Forest, also in Essex, has the second highest rate, up from 971.2 to 1,388.1, with 1,828 new cases.

Thurrock, again in Essex, is in third place, where the rate has risen from 1,066.9 to 1,330.7, with 2,320 new cases.

Aside from these areas, the local authorities with the biggest week-on-week jumps are Castle Point (up from 787.8 to 1,179.5, with 1,066 new cases); Hertsmere (up from 472.7 to 821.6, with 862 new cases); and Harlow (up from 590.3 to 929.2, with 809 new cases).
