Here is Thursday’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 28, 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 29-October 1) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

This is up sharply from 219.3 per 100,000 in the seven days to September 21.

Liverpool has the second highest rate, up from 215.2 to 278.5, with 1,387 new cases.

Knowsley is in third place, where the rate has increased from 227.4 to 273.8, with 413 new cases.
