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 September 21, 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 (September 22-24) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

In Bolton, 628 new cases were recorded in the seven days to September 21 – the equivalent of 218.4 per 100,000 people.

Bolton continues to record the highest rate in England, up from 201.0 in the seven days to September 14.

South Tyneside has the second highest rate, up from 100.7 to 205.3 with 310 new cases.
