Where Derbyshire Ranks For New Covid-19 Cases

New figures have revealed where local areas rank for new Covid-19 cases when compared with neighbouring counties.

Public Health England data shows the rolling seven-day rate of new coronavirus cases for every local authority, including those in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.


The figures, for the seven days leading up to July 30, are based on both pillar one data (tests carried out in Public Health England labs and NHS hospital settings) and pillar two data (from the wider community, such as care homes).

The rate refers to the number of new cases of the virus per 100,000 people.

High Peak is the Derbyshire area with the highest number of cases recorded over the seven-day period, with 9.8 new cases per 100,000 people.


The local authority, which covers towns including Buxton and Glossop, sits seventh out of 25 authorities across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.


Promisingly for Derbyshire, High Peak is the only county area in the top 10 locally, with Chesterfield sitting 11th, North East Derbyshire placed 14th, and Derby ranked 15th.

Derby, 3.9 new cases per 100,000 people, has a lower infection rate than Nottingham, 6.9, and much lower than Leicester, 52.6, where a local lockdown was enforced in late June.

The full list of local data below shows the seven-day rate per 100,000 for the week before July 30, with new confirmed cases in brackets.


The second set of numbers show the same, but for the week up until July 23.

The list has been compiled by the PA news agency and is based on Public Health England data published on August 2 on the Government's coronavirus online dashboard.

It is worth noting however that data for recent days (July 31-August 2) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.
