The 11 north Derbyshire areas with the highest Covid infection rates

Coronavirus cases have stopped falling across the UK and have levelled off at a high rate – but what is the situation locally?

Tuesday, 1st February 2022, 8:27 pm

There were 634,026 cases in the week ending January 21, a 0.2 per cent rise on the number seen the week before.

It is double the number of cases the UK saw in the last week of November, before the Omicron wave.

The flat national picture disguises huge regional variations, with cases up by 26 per cent in a week in Northern Ireland and 20 per cent in the South East of England but down by 21 per cent in Scotland and 15 per cent in the North East.

At neighbourhood level, Covid-19 case rates have been published for the week to January 20.

Here are the 11 north Derbyshire areas, covering Chesterfield, Bolsover and North East Derbyshire, with the highest rates over this period:
