Here is Friday’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 29, 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 30-October 2) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

This is up sharply from 239.5 per 100,000 in the seven days to September 22.

Manchester has the second highest rate, up from 189.4 to 289.4, with 1,600 new cases.

Liverpool is in third place, where the rate has increased from 239.3 to 287.7, with 1,433 new cases.
