Coronavirus tracker: How many cases of Covid-19 are there in my area this week?

With coronavirus cases rising in some areas of England, keeping track of weekly infection figures is a good way of understanding how your area is faring.

Public Health England (PHE) records data on the number of infections each week in areas of between 5,000 and 15,000 people, and typically about 8,000.

The Cambridge Independent has taken this data and created a searchable database that enables you to enter the name of your area and find out if there have been three or more laboratory-confirmed cases of Covid-19 each week.

PHE suppresses the data if one or two cases are recorded. This means that in our table, the dots represent 0, 1 or 2 cases.

Place names listed are known as ‘middle super output areas’ (if you can’t find your town or city, try an area within it eg Arbury rather than Cambridge, Bedwell, rather than Stevenage).

The data covers from when the first confirmed cases were recorded in England, and the latest figures cover cases confirmed by July 26 and reported up to July 29.

For the total number of cases by local authority area, and the rate per 100,000 people, see the interactive maps below.

For the number of deaths in each local area, see our interactive map.

For more on cases throughout Cambridgeshire, see our dedicated story.

About pillar 1 and 2 test data

Data from both pillar 1 and pillar 2of the government testing programme are covered in this table.

Pillar 1 tests are those carried out by hospitals and councils and processed in Public Health England laboratories. Pillar 2 tests are those carried out at drive-through centres and via home-testing kits, which is then processed in commercial labs. This is important because some spikes in cases - such as the one that has affected Leicester - might only be visible through the pillar two testing data.
