Only one of the fifty areas in England currently worst hit by coronavirus is in the South, new data show.

Southampton, at 49, is the only local authority to make the top 50 when it comes to coronavirus infection case rates, according to Public Health England data.

All of the areas above it in the list – most of which are now seeing their infection rates rise after weeks of falling figures – are in the North, Midlands and East of England.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 112 (36 per cent) have seen a rise in case rates, 198 (63 per cent) have seen a fall and five are unchanged.

The UK wide daily coronavirus case rate has been fairly steady at between 5,000 and 6,000 for the past couple of weeks, highlighting how most areas with a rise in cases are only enduring small ones.
