Here is Thursday’s update of the rolling seven-day rate of new cases of Covid-19 for every local authority area in England.

The figures, for the seven days to August 24, 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 three days (August 25-27) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

In Pendle, 53 new cases were recorded in the seven days to August 24 – the equivalent of 57.5 per 100,000 people. This is the highest rate in England, but it is down from 81.4 in the seven days to August 17.

The rate in Blackburn with Darwen is 56.8, down from 68.1, with 85 new cases.
