Gateshead, is among the areas seeing the most rapid increases, with Bolton, Liverpool, Birmingham, Hertsmere and Bury among the places which saw the rate double compared to a week before.

The latest data from Public Health England shows there are 196 areas in England with a new infection rate of more than 10 per 100,000.

The worst-affected area is Bolton, where 350 new cases were affected in seven days – more than double the previous week.

The rate in Bradford has also increased sharply, from 46.3 to 70.6 with 381 new cases.

Blackburn with Darwen is in third place, where the rate has risen from 47.4 to 62.8, with 94 new cases.
