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 December 13, 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 14-17) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 261 (83%) have seen a rise in case rates, 50 (16%) have seen a fall and four (1%) are unchanged.
