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

Here is Thursday'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 August 17, 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 18-20) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

In Oldham 187 new cases were recorded in the seven days to August 17 – the equivalent of 78.9 per 100,000 people, down from 111.8 in the seven days to August 10.

Northampton is almost level with Oldham on 78.4, up slightly from 74.4, with 176 new cases.

Blackburn with Darwen is third, where the rate has fallen from 81.5 to 67.5, with 101 new cases.

In Leicester the rate continues to fall, down from 70.3 to 52.5, with 186 new cases.

Other areas recording notable week-on-week jumps include:

– Manchester (up from 38.5 to 49.0, with 271 new cases)

– Bury (up from 22.0 to 33.0, with 63 new cases)

– Stoke-on-Trent (up from 15.6 to 26.1, with 67 new cases)

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency and is based on Public Health England data published on August 20 on the Government's coronavirus online dashboard.

Here is the list in full.
