How Greater Manchester’s Covid rates compare with rest of England

Latest figures show how the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester compare to every local authority in England on coronavirus infection rates.

The figures, for the seven days to February 26, 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 four days (February 27-March 2) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 22 (7 per cent) have seen a rise in case rates, 290 (92 per cent) have seen a fall and three are unchanged.

Corby in Northamptonshire continues to have the highest rate in England, with 166 new cases recorded in the seven days to February 26 – the equivalent of 229.9 cases per 100,000 people.

This is down from 346.2 cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to February 19.

Leicester has the second highest rate, down from 256.6 to 207.8, with 736 new cases.

North West Leicestershire is in third place, down slightly from 220.1 to 198.8, with 206 new cases.

In Greater Manchester, the highest rates are in Bolton and the lowest in Trafford.

Of the 22 areas to record a week-on-week rise, the top five are:

Hyndburn (up from 129.6 to 164.1)

Worthing (76.0 to 108.5)

East Lindsey (41.6 to 72.0)

Hull (144.0 to 165.1)

West Lindsey (111.8 to 128.6)

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency based on Public Health England data published on March 2 on the government’s coronavirus dashboard.
