This graph shows the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the city*. It gives a rolling 7-day average because this is a better indication of local trends than daily figures, which can go up and down a lot.

Please note that the most recent data, in particular the last 4 days, is likely to be incomplete due to delays in reporting so may underrepresent the total number of confirmed cases.

Therefore, we show the number and rate of confirmed cases for the latest likely complete 7 day period, excluding the latest 4 days.

Rates may differ slightly from those published by UK Health Security Agency, as these are produced as a snapshot in time and do not include retrospectively added confirmed cases.

Where this information comes from

This data is published by UK Health Security Agency.

*This includes the number of people with at least one positive COVID-19 test result, either lab-reported or lateral flow device, by specimen date. Individuals tested positive more than once are only counted once, on the date of their first positive test.
