The seven parts of England with no new COVID-19 cases for a month

Seven parts of the country which have seen barely any cases of coronavirus for a month have been revealed.

The figures have been released by Public Health England and show the parts of the country barely recording any new cases of Covid-19.

It comes as the coronavirus rate per 100,000 people for every local authority in the country is revealed.

In the north of England, Hambleton has seen just one case since July 14, with Richmondshire the same.

Scarborough, however, has no cases since July 3, with Ryedale not seeing a case since July 5.

Torridge has not had any cases since July 9, with the Isle of Wight going without a confirmed Covid-19 case since July 2.

West Devon had no cases since June 26.

The figures are published by Public Health England and cover positive cases that have been confirmed up to and including July 24 by tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

Data on new confirmed cases of Covid-19 is published daily, so these numbers may change in forthcoming days.

Figures for the most recent three days – July 25 to 27 – have been excluded as they are incomplete and likely to be revised.

In Birmingham and the West Midlands, Wolverhampton’s rate is up from 5 to 13 cases per 100,000 with Sandwell remaining in the top ten rates for the entire country.

Leicester is second, with Blackburn recording the most new cases of coronavirus.

Solihull has seen a rise in recent days, with Birmingham staying largely the same in new figures released on Tuesday July 28.
