The 45 places in north of England with highest Covid rates, ranked

The 45 places in northern England with the highest coronavirus infection rates have been revealed.

Analysis shows Carlisle in Cumbria is currently the highest rate location, followed by Wolverhampton in second place.

The vast majority of places in England with the highest rates of infection are in the south, with London and Essex occupying many of the top 20 places with the worst rates.

Now our surveys have found the areas in the North and Midlands with the highest rates.

Places in the West Midlands appear seven times on our list, while places in Merseyside and Lancashire appear five times each.

Cheshire appears four times, as do the various parts of Greater Yorkshire.

Cumbria, Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Warwickshire appear three times.

County Durham, Derbyshire and Tyne and Wear appear twice while Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire appear once.

The numbers for the seven days leading up to January 1 are based on tests performed in laboratories (Pillar 1 of the government’s testing program) and in the wider community (Pillar 2).

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

Data for the last four days (January 2-5) have been excluded because they are incomplete.

The list below was calculated by the Press Association news agency based on data from Public Health England released on the government’s coronavirus dashboard on Jan. 5.
