How Greater Manchester compares to the rest of England on Covid-19 case rates

This is how the 10 authorities in Greater Manchester compare to every local authority in England on coronavirus infection rates.

The figures, for the seven days to March 18, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

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

Data for the most recent four days (March 19-22) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 138 (44 per cent) have seen a rise in case rates, 171 (54 per cent) have seen a fall and six are unchanged.

In Greater Manchester, the highest case rate is in Salford, Tameside and Bolton, with Trafford seeing the lowest rate.

Barnsley has the highest rate in England, with 483 new cases recorded in the seven days to March 18 – the equivalent of 195.7 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 147.4 per 100,000 in the seven days to March 11.

Corby in Northamptonshire has the second highest rate, up from 162.0 to 189.7, with 137 new cases.

Redditch in the West Midlands has the third highest rate, up from 157.2 to 164.2, with 140 new cases.

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

Luton (up from 93.4 to 141.7)

Barnsley (147.4 to 195.7)

North Lincolnshire (122.5 to 160.2)

Ipswich (46.7 to 80.3)

Barrow-in-Furness (19.4 to 50.7)

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency based on Public Health England data published on March 22 on the government’s coronavirus dashboard.
