Latest coronavirus rates for each part of Worcestershire with one area in top 50



The Covid infection rate continues to fall across Worcestershire as the country enters the second month of national lockdown.

Cases previously soared dramatically across the county in January, with positive tests more than doubling in the space of a week in some areas.

While cases are now falling across England, Redditch remains one of the worst-hit areas. The district recorded 352 cases and an infection rate of 412.8 in the seven days to January 28.

That compared to 565 cases and an infection rate of 662.7 in the week before January 21, however.

The particularly high number of Covid cases in Redditch was previously pinned to key workers by the county council.

It said a high percentage of the cases last month were among working age people, many of whom were not able to work from home, adding those key workers were in sectors such as manufacturing, child-care, supermarkets and healthcare.

Employers were being urged by the council to ensure staff keep to social distancing guidance at all times, including breaks and on the way into and out of work.

Elsewhere in the county, Worcester has fallen from 573 cases to 331, Wychavon has dropped from 503 to 469 and Wyre Forest recorded 285 cases after having 327 the week before.

Of the 315 local areas in England, only four (one per cent) saw a rise in case rates and 311 (99 per cent) saw a fall.

The list was calculated by the PA news agency based on Public Health England data published on February 1 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 January 28; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to January 28; rate of new cases in the seven days to January 21; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to January 21.
