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

Here are the latest figures for the seven-day rate of new Covid-19 cases for every local authority area in Wales.

The figures, for the seven days to November 23, are based on tests carried out in NHS Wales laboratories and those conducted on Welsh residents processed in commercial laboratories.

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Data for the most recent four days (November 24-27) has been excluded as it is incomplete and understates the true number of cases.

Rates have risen in 16 of the 22 local authority areas.

The biggest rise is in Torfaen, where the rate is up from 183.1 to 338.4.

Flintshire recorded the biggest fall, down from 160.8 to 119.2.

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency and is based on data published on the Public Health Wales Covid-19 surveillance dashboard on November 27.
