Here is Wednesday’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 October 17, 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 (October 18-21) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

The numbers continue to fall in the areas with the highest rates in England.

In Knowsley, 1,006 new cases were recorded in the seven days to October 17 – the equivalent of 666.8 cases per 100,000 people.

This is down from 709.3 cases per 100,000 in the seven days to October 10.

Nottingham has the second highest rate, but this is down sharply from 975.1 to 639.5, with 2,129 new cases.

Liverpool is in third place, where the rate has dropped from 691.7 to 596.3, with 2,970 new cases.

Case rates have also continued to decrease in the cities of Newcastle, Exeter, Sheffield, Manchester, Leeds and Oxford.

Areas recording big jumps in their seven-day rates include Rossendale (up from 334.3 to 514.8, with 368 new cases); Blackpool (up from 276.1 to 427.4, with 596 new cases);  and Barnsley (up from 264.5 to 423.3, with 1,045 new cases).
