Latest weekly Covid-19 rates for local authority areas in England

  Latest weekly Covid-19 rates for local authority areas in England Just over half (52%) of local areas have recorded a week-on-week rise in rates.The figures, for the seven days to April 23, are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test, by specimen date.

Here is Thursday’s update of Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in England.

The figures, for the seven days to May 2, are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test, by specimen date.

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

Data for the most recent four days (May 3-6) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 93 (30%) have seen a rise in rates, 209 (66%) have seen a fall and 13 are unchanged.

Covid-19 rates drop below 50 per 100,000 in 19 out of 20 local areas

  Covid-19 rates drop below 50 per 100,000 in 19 out of 20 local areas Three months ago just 1% of areas were recording rates under 50.It is the first time since the start of September that as many as 19 in 20 areas have seen their rates plunge below such a symbolic level.

Hyndburn in Lancashire continues to have the highest rate, with 98 new cases in the seven days to May 2 – the equivalent of 120.9 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 71.6 in the seven days to April 25.

Bolton in Greater Manchester has the second highest rate, up from 48.0 to 85.2, with 245 new cases.

Erewash in Derbyshire has the third highest, up from 11.3 to 65.0, with 75 new cases.

The five areas with the biggest week-on-week rises are:

Erewash (up from 11.3 to 65.0)

Hyndburn (71.6 to 120.9)

Bolton (48.0 to 85.2)

Parts of London yet to vaccinate half their 45 to 50-year-olds

  Parts of London yet to vaccinate half their 45 to 50-year-olds EXCLUSIVE: NHS England data going up to April 25 show 65 per cent of adults in the age group have had their first dose. But MailOnline analysis shows rates vary wildly across the country. Seven local authorities have seen inoculated fewer than half of residents in the age group.Kensington and Chelsea in London has the lowest uptake rate in the country by some distance, with just 6,678 of 15,384 people in the borough getting a first dose — an uptake rate of just 43.4 per cent.For comparison, some 20 areas of the country have vaccinated more than 80 per cent of their residents in the age group.

From left to right, it reads: name of local authority; rate of new cases in the seven days to May 2; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to May 2; rate of new cases in the seven days to April 25; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to April 25.

How long will Britain's 'explosive' economic recovery last?

  How long will Britain's 'explosive' economic recovery last? Back in February, the BoE predicted 5 per cent of these excess savings would be spent, but that has now been upgraded to 10 per cent over a three-year period. © Provided by This Is Money Banking on you: Laith Khalaf, an analyst at AJ Bell, said: 'The Bank of England is expecting a consumer spending spree to fuel an explosive economic recovery this year' According to Mr Khalaf, the doubling of this specific saving and spending-related forecast tells us 'there is a high degree of uncertainty in estimates of just how extravagant consumer spending is going to be'.

Wealthy nations once lauded as successes lag in vaccinations

  Wealthy nations once lauded as successes lag in vaccinations WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Some wealthy nations that were most praised last year for controlling the coronavirus are now lagging far behind in getting their people vaccinated — and some, especially in Asia, are seeing COVID-19 cases grow. In Japan, South Korea and New Zealand, the vaccination rates are languishing in the single figures. That is in sharp contrast to the U.S., where nearly half of all people have gotten at least one shot, and Britain and Israel, where rates are even higher. © Provided by Associated Press FILE - In this Feb.

Wealthy nations once lauded as successes lag in vaccinations .
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Some wealthy nations that were most praised last year for controlling the coronavirus are now lagging far behind in getting their people vaccinated — and some, especially in Asia, are seeing COVID-19 cases grow. In Japan, South Korea and New Zealand, the vaccination rates are languishing in the single figures. That is in sharp contrast to the U.S., where nearly half of all people have gotten at least one shot, and Britain and Israel, where rates are even higher. © Provided by Associated Press FILE - In this Feb.
