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 December 6, 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 four days (December 7-10) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 166 have seen a rise in case rates, 146 have seen a fall, and three are unchanged.

Swale in Kent continues to have the highest rate in England, with 938 new cases recorded in the seven days to December 6 – the equivalent of 625.0 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 578.4 in the seven days to November 29.

Medway, also in Kent, has the second highest rate, up from 560.4 to 604.5, with 1,684 new cases.

Basildon in Essex is in third place, where the rate has risen from 313.0 to 476.0, with 891 new cases.

Aside from Basildon, the areas with the biggest week-on-week jumps are Hastings (up from 68.0 to 254.7, with 236 new cases); Broxbourne (up from 176.8 to 293.0, with 285 new cases); and Waltham Forest in London (up from 214.5 to 327.1, with 906 new cases).

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency, based on Public Health England data published on December 10 on the Government’s coronavirus dashboard.

Here is the list in full.
