Lancashire infection rates as areas rise well above rest of country – –


All parts of Lancashire now have rates above the national average for Covid-19.
Blackburn with Darwen retains the highest rates in the country – with numbers still rising – while the area with the fastest growing is the Ribble Valley.

The figures, for the seven days through June 7, are based on the number of people who tested positive for Covid-19 in a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test, by sample date.

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

Data for the most recent four days (June 8-11) have been excluded as they are incomplete and do not reflect the actual number of cases.

Of England’s 315 local areas, 281 (89%) saw their rates increase, 28 (9%) saw a decrease and six are unchanged.

Rossendale – also in Lancashire – has the third highest, rising from 296.6 to 372.1, with 266 new cases.

From left to right, we read: name of the local authority; rate of new cases in the seven days to June 7; number (in brackets) of new cases registered in the seven days prior to June 7; rate of new cases in the seven days prior to May 31; number (in parentheses) of new cases registered in the seven days prior to May 31.
