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

By Joe Gammie, PA
·14-min read

Here is Friday’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 November 23, 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 (November 24-27) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

A majority of areas in England (298 out of 315) have seen a fall in case rates.

This is down from 655.0 in the seven days to November 16.

Thanet has the second highest rate, down from 521.4 to 468.6, with 665 new cases.

Boston is in third place, where the rate has dropped from 468.8 to 453.2, with 318 new cases.
