Latest Covid rates for every local authority area in England

Here is the update of the Covid-19 case rates for all local authorities in England on Wednesday.

The numbers for the seven days ending May 22 are based on the number of people who tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test after the sample date.

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

The last four days of data (May 23-26) have been excluded because they are incomplete and do not reflect the actual number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 137 (43%) saw rates rise, 162 (51%) fell and 16 remained unchanged.

Bolton in the Greater Manchester area continues to have the highest rate with 1,286 new cases in the seven days up to May 22nd – the equivalent of 447.2 cases per 100,000 population.

This is from 321.7 in the seven days through May 15th.

Blackburn with Darwen in Lancashire has the second highest rate of 469 new cases from 145.0 to 313.3.

Bedford has the third highest value with 350 new cases from 127.0 to 202.0.

The five areas with the greatest increases from week to week are:

  • Blackburn with Darwen (from 145.0 to 313.3)
  • Bolton (321.7 to 447.2)
  • Rossendale (29.4 to 137.1)
  • Bedford (127.0 to 202.0)
  • Kirklees (72.1 to 108.5)

The list was calculated by the PA News Agency based on data from Public Health England released on the government’s coronavirus dashboard on May 26.

Here is the full list.
