How does Cornwall compare to rest of UK ahead of Tier review?

Cornwall has seen a small rise in weekly coronavirus cases over the past seven days – but how does it compare to the rest of the UK going into the government’s review of Tiers today?

Last night’s update of the rolling seven-day rate of new cases of Covid-19 for every local authority area in England shows figures for the seven days to December 11.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 246 (78 per cent) have seen a rise in case rates, 68 (22 per cent) have seen a fall, and one area is unchanged.

Cornwall and Isles of Scilly is one of the local authorities to have seen a rise.

Figures show that it had 147 positive test results recorded in the seven days to December 11, representing a rolling rate of 25.7 cases per 100,000 people.

This is ten more cases than a week ago, when there were 137 cases recorded up to December 4, at a rate of 24.0 per 100,0000 people.

The figures 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 (December 12 to 15) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Swale in Kent has the highest rate in England, with 1,083 new cases recorded in the seven days to December 11 – the equivalent of 721.6 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 608.3 in the seven days to December 4.

Medway, also in Kent, has the second highest rate, up from 594.9 to 699.0, with 1,947 new cases.

Basildon in Essex is in third place, where the rate has risen sharply from 409.2 to 696.1, with 1,303 new cases.

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency, based on Public Health England data published on December 15 on the Government’s coronavirus dashboard.

Here is the list in full. From left to right, it reads: name of local authority; rate of new cases in the seven days to December 11; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to December 11; rate of new cases in the seven days to December 4; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to December 4.
