Three areas in England have seen their coronavirus case rates double and even triple week-on-week.

In the latest case rate figures out today from Public Health England, 98% of England is shown to have seen a rise in case rates.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 310 have seen a rise and just five (2%) have seen a fall.

In today’s update of the latest Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in England, the rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

The areas recording the biggest week-on-week jumps are Carlisle (up from 349.7 to 932.1 with 1,013 new cases); Rushmoor in Hampshire (up from 657.5 to 1,229.4 with 1,163 new cases); and the Isle of Wight (up from 215.8 to 785.8, with 1,114 new cases).

This is up from 976.5 in the seven days to December 25.

Thurrock in Essex has the second-highest rate, up from 1,217.2 to 1,471.8, with 2,566 new cases.

Castle Point, also in Essex, is in third place, where the rate has increased from 1,083.3 to 1,419.6 with 1,283 new cases.

Boris Johnson announces Covid-19 vaccine has been given to 1.3m people in UK

The latest figures come as England begins its third national lockdown as daily recorded coronavirus cases smashing previous records, exceeding 60,000 in today’s release from the Department of Health and exceeding 50,000 eight days in a row.

And today, a further 830 people died within 28 days of testing positive for the virus.

With the new mutant coronavirus strain now said to be ripping through areas outside of England’s southeast, the government’s top medical advisor Chris Whitty today warned hospitalisations across England were “rising very rapidly and, of course, we are still in the middle of winter”.

Speaking at the Downing Street press conference, Professor Whitty said there would “inevitably” be an increase in deaths in January.

He added that one in 50 people being estimated to have coronavirus across the UK in the days following Christmas is “really quite a large number indeed”.

Highlighting recent infection figures, Boris Johnson said: “It was clear that we got to a situation where Tier 4 on its own couldn’t be relied upon to get the virus under control and that’s without really going the whole way and asking people to stay at home and, sadly, to close schools as well.

“That’s why we took the step that we did.”

The figures, for the seven days to January 1, 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 (January 2-5) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

The list is based on Public Health England data published on January 5 on the Government’s coronavirus dashboard.

Three areas in England have seen their coronavirus case rates double and even triple week-on-week.

In the latest case rate figures out today from Public Health England, 98% of England is shown to have seen a rise in case rates.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 310 have seen a rise and just five (2%) have seen a fall.

In today’s update of the latest Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in England, the rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

The areas recording the biggest week-on-week jumps are Carlisle (up from 349.7 to 932.1 with 1,013 new cases); Rushmoor in Hampshire (up from 657.5 to 1,229.4 with 1,163 new cases); and the Isle of Wight (up from 215.8 to 785.8, with 1,114 new cases).

Barking & Dagenham in London continues to have

Barking & Dagenham in London continues to have the highest rate in England, with 3,216 new cases recorded in the seven days to January 1 – the equivalent of 1,510.5 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 976.5 in the seven days to December 25.

Thurrock in Essex has the second-highest rate, up from 1,217.2 to 1,471.8, with 2,566 new cases.

Castle Point, also in Essex, is in third place, where the rate has increased from 1,083.3 to 1,419.6 with 1,283 new cases.

The latest figures come as England begins its third national lockdown as daily recorded coronavirus cases smashing previous records, exceeding 60,000 in today’s release from the Department of Health and exceeding 50,000 eight days in a row.

And today, a further 830 people died within 28 days of testing positive for the virus.

With the new mutant coronavirus strain now said to be ripping through areas outside of England’s southeast, the government’s top medical advisor Chris Whitty today warned hospitalisations across England were “rising very rapidly and, of course, we are still in the middle of winter”.

Speaking at the Downing Street press conference, Professor Whitty said there would “inevitably” be an increase in deaths in January.

He added that one in 50 people being estimated to have coronavirus across the UK in the days following Christmas is “really quite a large number indeed”.

Highlighting recent infection figures, Boris Johnson said: “It was clear that we got to a situation where Tier 4 on its own couldn’t be relied upon to get the virus under control and that’s without really going the whole way and asking people to stay at home and, sadly, to close schools as well.

“That’s why we took the step that we did.”

Here is the list in full.

The figures, for the seven days to January 1, 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 (January 2-5) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

The list is based on Public Health England data published on January 5 on the Government’s coronavirus dashboard.
