Infection rates in Kirklees have seen one of the biggest increases in the country after nearly 150 people tested positive for the coronavirus last week. Data from Public Health England comparing the rates of COVID-19 infections for each local authority in England suggests that parts of Yorkshire are still seeing worrying increases.

The figures are based on tests performed in laboratories (pillar 1 of the government’s testing program) and in the community at large (pillar 2).

This is expressed as the new number of new cases per 100,000 population during the seven days to August 14.

For the second week in a row, Bradford, Kirklees and Calderdale maintain their positions as Yorkshire coronavirus hotspots.

This cluster remains under local lockdown with more stringent measures in place.

Bradford, however, dropped out of the five highest infection rates in England and now sits sixth in the national rankings – with infection rates falling from 56.5 to 53.7.

Calderdale also fell from ninth to 11th place, with infection rates dropping from 48.2 to 37.4.

Northampton continues to have the highest rate, thanks to an outbreak at the Sandwich Factory in Greencore.

The infection rate in Kirklees fell from 27.5 to 33.9, with 149 new cases.
