Here is Friday’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 25, 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 26-28) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

In Pendle, 52 new cases were recorded in the seven days to August 25 – the equivalent of 56.5 per 100,000 people. This is the highest rate in England, but it is down from 68.4 in the seven days to August 18.

The rate in Blackburn with Darwen is 54.1, down from 58.8, with 81 new cases.

Oldham is third, where the rate has fallen from 75.1 to 54.0, with 128 new cases.
