Covid cases rise in 104 parts of England including Sheffield – full list of where Covid is rising

Covid cases have risen in Sheffield in the past week as infections rose in one third of all local authorities in England.

Tuesday, 16th March 2021, 2:36 pm

Across 315 regions, 104 local authorities reported that their coronavirus infections rate had increased but, for more, there was only a slight rise.

The figures, for the seven days to March 11, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

Hull has the highest rate in England, with 444 new cases recorded in the seven days to March 11 – the equivalent of 170.9 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 148.6 per 100,000 in the seven days to March 4.

Corby in Northamptonshire has the second highest rate, up from 134.3 to 162.0, with 117 new cases.

Redditch in Worcestershire is in third place, up from 140.7 to 157.2, with 134 new cases.

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

Derbyshire Dales (up from 56.7 to 153.5)

North East Lincolnshire (101.5 to 149.8)

North Lincolnshire (81.3 to 122.5)

Blackburn with Darwen (90.2 to 128.9)

Melton (44.9 to 82.0)

The news comes as the UK suffered its worst day for Covid-19 deaths during the second wave of the virus, new analysis confirms.

A total of 1,463 deaths occurred on January 19 where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

This is four more than the 1,459 deaths that occurred on April 8 2020, which was previously the UK’s “deadliest day”.

The total for January 19 has only now overtaken April 8, due to a small number of deaths that have recently been registered.

These are the 104 areas where Covid infections have risen in the past week.
