The six areas of England with high coronavirus rates but no local lockdown

With new restrictions in place to stop the spread of coronavirus across Greater Manchester and parts of east Lancashire and West Yorkshire, where else could we expect to be targeted?

New data shows there are areas currently not covered by any new measures that are showing signs of a resurgence in Covid-19.

It has revealed six areas of England with high infection rates but, as yet, no local lockdown in place, the Mirror reports.

The latest rolling seven-day rate of new cases of Covid-19 for every local authority in England, for the seven days up to July 28, show that Swindon, Melton, Eden in Cumbria, Sandwell, Northampton and Peterborough are among the places with the highest infection rates.

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

Data for the most recent three days (July 29-31) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

The list is based on Public Health England figures updated on July 31 on the Government’s coronavirus online dashboard.

The latest restrictions apply to Greater Manchester, including the City of Manchester, Trafford, Stockport, Oldham, Bury, Wigan, Bolton, Tameside, Rochdale and Salford.

They also apply to Blackburn with Darwen, Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle and Rossendale in Lancashire, and Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees in West Yorkshire.

Similar restrictions will also apply to Leicester, which saw the first so-called “local lockdown” imposed on June 29.

Government guidance published on Friday states that it will be against the law in those area for people from different households (so, those who do not live together) to meet in a private home or garden, unless they are part of a support bubble.

Up to two households, or six people from any number of households, are allowed to meet outdoors – but not in people’s gardens. It says people should continue to socially distance from anyone they do not live with and avoid physical contact.

On Friday morning Mr Hancock told the BBC that two households can still meet “at a social distance in a public place outdoors” such as a park, where there is lots of space, but meeting another household in pub gardens or outdoor restaurant space is not allowed in the newly restricted area of the North West.

Mr Hancock said people can still travel “for work purposes”.

He said: “Strictly, the law we’re bringing in is that two households cannot meet in the area defined but obviously any two households who are meeting should follow the social distancing guidelines.”

Asked specifically on BBC Breakfast if a household from, for example, Greater Manchester, could go to a household outside one of the affected areas, he said: “Following social distancing rules.”

The guidance says it will be illegal for people from outside the “lockdown area” to visit those inside the affected areas at their home.

The guidance also states that people can travel into and outside the lockdown areas for weddings and that, while people from outside the affected areas can attend, they should not go into a private home or garden.

People can travel inside and outside the lockdown areas for funerals too, the guidance states.

People in the affected areas are also being advised not to share a vehicle with anyone outside their household.

If they must, they should take precautions including keeping to small groups of people at any one time, opening windows for ventilation, wearing face coverings and travelling side by side or behind other people.

In Blackburn with Darwen and Bradford, indoor gyms, indoor fitness and dance studios, indoor sports courts and facilities and indoor swimming pools, including indoor facilities at water parks must remain closed.
