Tuesday’s update on Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in England shows every area in the West Midlands is falling.

Telford and Wrekin has a rate near 200, and remains in the top 50, with Cannock higher, at 206 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people.

Tamworth has a rate above 200 as remains in the top 50 also, but has dropped from last week’s high of 286 coronavirus cases per 100k.

South Staffordshire has a rate of 212, with Wolverhampton at 221, Birmingham at 224 and East Staffordshire at 264.

Walsall and Sandwell are in the top 10 – but both are below the 300 case per 100,000 people threshold.

The figures, for the seven days to February 12, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

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

Data for the most recent four days (February 13-16) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency based on Public Health England data published on February 16 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 February 12; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to February 12; rate of new cases in the seven days to February 5; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to February 5.
