These figures show the seven day rolling average for Coronavirus infections in each local authority area.

That's the number of people who have tested positive per 100,000 of the population.

The lists show:

  • the names of local authorities from highest to lowest for infections

  • followed by the rate per 100,000 people

  • then the percentage change from the previous week

This is where each local authority area stands in terms of case rates up to 14 January.


There is finally some good news, writes political reporter Gareth Owen. 

Rates are trending down in the UK, and in both the East and West Midlands, with some areas even seeing a significant drop in numbers. 

Elsewhere, the weekly percentage growth is much reduced, and I expect a lot of areas to go into decline over the weekend.  The brakes have definitely come on this week. 

Fingers crossed it continues!
