These are the latest Covid rates for every local authority area in the Midlands. Credit: ITV Central

This article is regularly updated with figures showing the Coronavirus infections in each local authority area.

You can see information on the current spread of coronavirus across our region and how the pandemic has developed here over time. 

We also have articles showing how vaccinations are going in the Midlands and how many people are in hospital with Covid.


New cases map

This clickable map of the Central region shows the rate of weekly new cases for every 100,000 residents in each district. 


It means we can fairly compare the scale of outbreaks in big cities like Birmingham, with more rural areas like Herefordshire and Lincolnshire. 

The darker the red, the bigger the outbreak. 

You can search for place names in the box in the top left. Because of the time taken to process tests and collect data, the figures represent the picture of infection five days before the published date on the map.


Infection Rates by Area

Here is more detailed information on infection rates for local areas, divided into West Midlands and East Midlands. 

Each region has

  • a bar chart demonstrating the current level of infection in each district or city

  • searchable table rates information.

  • a chart illustrating whether the rates are falling or increasing (and how rapidly).

Pandemic timeline

This graph shows the course of the pandemic since the start of the second wave in Autumn 2020. 



You can compare the infection rates in the West Midlands and in the East Midlands with the UK average over time. 

Significant moments are also included on the timeline, so you can see the effect of measures such as national lockdowns.
