Here is Tuesday’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 September 12, 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 three days (September 13-15) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

In Bolton, 564 new cases were recorded in the seven days to September 12 – the equivalent of 196.1 per 100,000 people. This is the highest rate in England and it is up from 139.5 in the seven days to September 5.

Oadby & Wigston has the second highest rate, up from 43.8 to 133.3 with 76 new cases.

Preston is in third place, where the rate has risen from 69.9 to 120.9, with 173 new cases.
