The current Covid-19 rate in Coventry is the highest it has ever been, according to data compiled by the Department of Health and Public Health England.
The rates in the city have surged to 318.15 cases per 100,000 people for the seven days to December 29.
In the latest seven day period, 1,182 new cases were recorded in the city. Provisional data for the following days shows hundreds more recorded cases.
With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of the worse affected areas – those with infection rates of over 400 cases per 100,000.
These areas show up on the government map in a maroon colour. Areas with rates above 800 show up as black. Coventry has no such areas at the current time.
The map data is slightly behind that of the Coventry and Warwickshire dashboard. Current data is for the seven days to December 28.
