The government is expected to decide this week which parts of the UK will be subject to the most severe restrictions – known as Tier 3.It is believed that the measures could be imposed district by district, with those with the highest rates subject to the strictest rules.

Boris Johnson is expected to announce details of new level system on Monday

There is even the possibility that individual cities, as opposed to boroughs or districts, will be placed in separate levels, with some council heads arguing for this more localized approach.

So we looked at the latest figures from Public England Health to identify areas with the highest infection rates in each region of Kent.

Ashford has the lowest infection rate in Kent, so it may be unfair to call one of its areas a Covid hotspot.

But 15 new cases in Tenterden and Rolvenden saw its rate climb to 180 the most recent week – a 150% jump, albeit from a low base of six cases the week before.
