The city’s Covid infection rate has fallen since the latest national lockdown began on January 6, according to Government figures.

But since mid-January the rate of positive Covid cases per 100,000 people in Sheffield has risen in more neighbourhoods than it has fallen, the latest statistics show.

While 30 out of 70 neighbourhoods across Sheffield have seen a drop in infections, the number of cases has risen in 36, with no change in the other four.

Here we reveal which neighbourhoods have seen the biggest drop in case rates per 100,000 between January 14 and 21.
