Latest coronavirus data

From 1 April 2022 access to free coronavirus testing stopped for most people.

Rates of infection before 1 April 2022 are therefore not directly comparable with rates after this date and should be interpreted with caution as they do not represent the whole population.

The most representative data for coronavirus can be found in the Office For National Statistics' COVID-19 infection survey weekly report

You can also see the data the weekly infection survey report is based on.

Further coronavirus data

The national dashboard on COVID-19 is available on the government's UK summary of Covid-19 page. This includes data at national and local levels, including reported case numbers, testing, vaccinations, mortality and hospital data.

The data is constantly refreshed as tests are processed. It can take a number of days for testing swabs to be processed so numbers reported are subject to change.

7 day rate and number of new cases by district

These figures are indicative and based on positive test results data supplied to us for the 7 day period preceding the ‘latest data’ date, and will not include test results that are still being processed.

Due to changes in testing guidance and availability, 7 day infection rates before 1 April 2022 are not directly comparable with rates after this date and should be interpreted with caution.

From 17 November 2021, Public Health England changed the way it identifies where a person with a positive test lives. As a result, rates and cases from 1 September 2021 may have changed. You can read Public Health England's statement on the changes to the geographical allocation of positive cases.
