Discover the number of coronavirus cases in YOUR local area – and if you’re at risk of lockdown

CASES of the coronavirus are continuing to climb in England, data from Public Health England (PHE) has revealed.

Local authorities are now said to be considering enforcing restrictions as cases of the virus continue to increase.

Areas such as Knowsley, in Merseyside witnessed a big jump in cases over the last seven days, going from 152.5 cases per 100,00 of the population to 279.7.

The figures, for the seven days to September 25, are based on tests carried out in labs (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 26-28) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

It shows that Knowsley now has the highest rate of cases in England.

It has recorded 422 new cases in the last seven days.

Burnley has also seen an increase from 157.4 per 100,000 to 269.9 per 100,000.

North News and Pictures

New lockdown measures were introduced to help curb the rise of coronavirus across the North East last week[/caption]

Both of these areas are in the high risk category – this means that these areas have seen a seven day rate of over 50 cases per 100,000 of the population.

Other areas in this risk category include Liverpool, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Bolton.

Most of these areas are also included on PHE’s watch list and are already under tougher restrictions than the rest of the country.

At present the rule of six applies to every one in England, aside from those in areas which are under tougher restrictions.

The rule of six means that you can only socialise in a group of six, inside or outside. The six members of the party can all be from different households.

 

 

Face masks and coverings are also mandatory on public transport and when shopping.

Shoppers and staff members alike will now have to wear masks and coverings.

In areas such as Knowsley – that are under local restrictions, residents are unable to socialise with people outside their households in private homes or gardens.

Residents in these areas have also been advised to not socialise with members who are not part of their household.

It was also revealed today that further local lockdowns could pop up across the nation within 24 hours thanks to real-time data provided by the NHS app.

Local authority officials believe tougher measures could come into force “within days” as spikes registered on the app will be noticed much quicker than other tracking techniques.

It means ministers do away with weekly lockdown reviews in favour of more “fluid” updates.

It means the harsher measures, such as household mixing bans, or takeaway options from pubs could be implemented much quicker.

One source said: “Meetings have been taking place over the weekend, and we have been put on notice that new measures could come into force at any time.”

In the red: the high risk areas

As areas in the red zone are already under or face tougher restrictions, areas in the amber zone are classed as being a medium risk level.

These are areas where cases may have increased over the last week and where further restrictions could also be imposed.

Areas in the amber zone are places that have reported a seven day rate of between 20 and 50 cases per 100,000 of the population.

Areas in the amber zone include places such as Broxtowe in Nottinghamshire, the area has seen 50 cases per 100,000 in the last week, up from 21.9 per 100,000 the week before.

Dudley in the West Midlands is also in the amber zone and has gone from 34.2 cases per 100,000 to 49.8.

Tower Hamlets in London has also seen an increase from 23.7 to 48.7 cases per 100,000 of the population.

East London has been hit the hardest by infections but other parts of the capital have also experienced an increase.

Coronavirus cases are rising in every London borough.

London mayor Sadiq Khan issued a call at the weekend for immediate action to stem the spread of the virus in the city, saying the capital was at a “tipping point”.

Covid rates in the city are still lower than the worst hotspots in the North but are steadily going up with hospital admissions also on the rise.

While cases of the virus are increasing in many parts of the country, there are areas that have managed to control the virus.

These are the green zones, these are areas that have seen below 20 cases per 100,000 in the last seven days.

These are areas that have managed to control the spread of the virus.

This level of cases is also what the government uses to determine quarantine travel abroad.

Places in the green zone include Lichfield in Staffordshire, where cases have dropped from 30.5 per 100,00 to 20.0.

Rutland in the East Midlands is also on the list, but cases of the virus have doubled in the last week from 10.0 to 20.0, despite this – cases are relatively low compared to the rest of the country.

Yesterday it was reported that coronavirus cases in the UK rose by 4,044 as 13 more deaths were recorded.

The number of infections has dropped for the first time in a fortnight.

It brings the total number of positive Covid test results in Britain to 439,013 with 42,001 fatalities overall.

While the number is slightly lower than recent days, authorities remain concerned over the increasing number of people testing positive. 

It comes as ministers prepare emergency plans to enforce a total social lockdown across parts of northern Britain for two weeks – and London could follow, it has been reported.

All pubs and restaurants could be ordered to shut for a fortnight and different households banned from socialising indoors under the emergency plan.

The social lockdown was an option presented to the Cabinet’s strategy committee before last week’s fresh restrictions, which included a 10pm curfew bars and restaurants.
