WBWire covid19 728x90 1

See the number of coronavirus cases per 100,000 residents for each local authority in the county. Figures from 5 September to 27 September.

The rates per 100,000 resident population give a fairer comparison of the number of cases in each area but they do not take account of the different rates of testing or differences in the age and sex of the local populations. Only data available for the latest reported date are shown.

Public Health England notes:

‘Total number of people with a lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 antigen test result reported since the start of the pandemic, and rates of cases per 100,000 population.

‘COVID-19 cases are identified by taking specimens from people and sending these specimens to laboratories around the UK to be tested for COVID-19 antigens. If the test is positive, this is a referred to as a lab-confirmed case. If a person has had more than one positive test they are only counted as one case.

‘Data can be presented by specimen date (the date when the sample was taken from the person being tested) or by reporting date (the date the case was first included in the published totals). The availability of each of these time series varies by area.’
