UK News: Latest Covid-19 case rates for UK local authority areas

Why health secretary's 200k Omicron case claim was back-of-envelope sum not a definitive number

  Why health secretary's 200k Omicron case claim was back-of-envelope sum not a definitive number There have been many striking numbers during this pandemic but few as striking as the one cited by Health Secretary Sajid Javid in the House of Commons yesterday. © Sky News Screen Grab Sajid Javid mentioned the figure to MPs on Monday He said that the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) had estimated that, as of that very day - 13 December - there were around 200,000 new Omicron infections.The figure was so high that many of those who follow such things couldn't quite get their heads around it.

Here is Wednesday’s update of Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in the UK.

The figures, for the seven days to December 18, are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in a lab-reported test plus, in England, positive rapid lateral flow tests that do not have a negative confirmatory lab-based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test within 72 hours.

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

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

Of the 377 local areas in the UK, 353 (94%) have seen a week-on-week rise in rates and 24 (6%) have seen a fall.
