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

·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 12, 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 13-16) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 255 (81%) have seen a rise in case rates and 60 (19%) have seen a fall.

Swale in Kent continues to have the highest rate in England, with 1,114 new cases recorded in the seven days to December 12 – the equivalent of 742.3 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 625.0 in the seven days to December 5.

Medway, also in Kent, has the second highest rate, up from 605.6 to 734.9, with 2,047 new cases.

Basildon in Essex is in third place, where the rate has risen sharply from 442.3 to 713.1, with 1,335 new cases.

The areas with the biggest week-on-week jumps are Thurrock (up from 255.2 to 601.7, with 1,049 new cases); Ashford (up from 259.2 to 599.9, with 780 new cases); and Epping Forest (up from 249.8 to 552.1, with 727 new cases).
