The 36 places in England with the highest coronavirus rates

Thirty-six areas in England have coronavirus rates of more than one case per 1,000 people, new figures show.

Data from Public Health England shows that nine of these areas currently have weekly coronavirus rates, meaning one in 500 people there will have the virus.

The numbers for Sept. 26-28 have been ruled out as officials say the dates are incomplete and likely to change.

The area with the highest rate is Knowsley on Merseyside

In the seven days up to September 25, a total of 422 cases were registered there – this corresponds to 279.7 cases per 100,000, a significant increase from 152.5 in the seven days up to September 18.

Eight other areas of England now have weekly rates over 200 cases per 100,000 people.

This includes Liverpool, where the rate rose from 165.4 to 262.2 and recorded 1,306 new cases.

There are many places in the Lancashire area where falls are now above the 200 rate.

Hyndburn, Burnley and Pendle belong to the brackets as well as the neighbors Manchester and Bolton.

Halton in Cheshire and Newcastle upon Tyne in the northeast are the other two places with a rate of over 200.

The total number of cases in the UK since the pandemic started is now 439,013.

As of Monday, 13 more deaths had been recorded since the last 24 hours, bringing the number to 42,001 in the UK.

Here is the list of 36 municipal areas with more than 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

Downing Street is under review to see if further measures will be taken to combat the spread of the virus.

Downing Street hasn’t ruled out further restrictions to limit its spread, including a two-week “hiatus” and a ban on social mixing.

When asked about reported plans, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “There is nothing new except the position that the Prime Minister set out on Tuesday.

“We said we might need to take additional steps, especially in areas with high prevalence.”

When asked about London, he said there was “no update” as the capital had been added to the list of problem areas.

They said new national measures were not expected this week – but added that a sudden change in the number of coronavirus cases could change that.
