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

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

The figures, for the seven days to August 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 three days (August 16-18) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

Northampton continues to have the highest rate, thanks to an outbreak at the Greencore sandwich factory.

A total of 279 new cases were recorded in the town in the seven days to August 15, the equivalent of 124.2 per 100,000 people – up from 38.7 in the seven days to August 8.
