The number of new Covid-19 cases in Birmingham has fallen sharply over the past week – but remains at dangerous levels.There were 1,251 new cases of the coronavirus in the city last week, bringing the infection rate to 109.6 per 100,000.

This compares to 147.3 per 100,000 at the same time last week.

However, the coronavirus is still on the rise in most parts of the West Midlands – nine showing an increase and eight a decrease.

The two main hot spots – Sandwell being the other – have eased, as has Wolverhampton, which is also subject to a household ban.

However, there have been increases in Solihull, Dudley and Telford and Wrekin, according to data released on Friday October 2.

The numbers, for the seven days through September 29, are based on testing done in laboratories (pillar 1 of the government’s testing program) and in the wider community (pillar 2).

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

Data for the most recent three days (September 30-October 2) have been excluded as they are incomplete and subject to revision.

Burnley continues to have the highest rate in England, with 303 new cases recorded in the seven days to September 29 – the equivalent of 340.8 cases per 100,000 population.

Manchester has the second highest rate, dropping from 189.4 to 289.4, with 1,600 new cases.

Here is the full list. From left to right, we read: the name of the local authority; rate of new cases in the seven days to September 29; number (in brackets) of new cases registered in the seven days prior to September 29; rate of new cases in the seven days to September 22; number (in parentheses) of new cases recorded in the seven days prior to September 22.
