Here is Monday’s update of Covid-19 case rates for every local authority area in England.

The figures, for the seven days to May 20, are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test, by specimen date.

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

Data for the most recent four days (May 21-24) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.
