Here is Tuesday’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 29, 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 30-September 1) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

The rate in Bolton has jumped from 18.4 to 59.1, with 170 new cases.
