Places further north such as West Lancashire and Blackpool also have more than 400 cases per 100,000 of the population.

Earlier this week it was revealed that Greater Manchester would be pushed into a Tier 3 lockdown – as part of the government’s drive to curb infections in the area.

Blackburn with Darwen – which was previously classed as a Covid hotspot area, is in the top five most infected places in the country and currently has 575.8 infection per 100,000.

It is the fourth most infected place in the country and sits behind, Knowsley, Nottingham and Liverpool.

Rossendale in Lancashire is the fifth most infected place in the country with535.8 cases per 100,000.

Places such as Liverpool are already in Tier 3 and this means that pubs are shut and households cannot mix in any settings.

The government lockdown is split into three Tiers and this reflects the level of infection across the country.

The infection map above has three categories, dark red, red and amber.

But previously it had included a green category – for areas where cases were under 20 per 100,000.

Earlier this week Folkestone and Hythe in Kent was the only place in England to have remained in the category as it had 18.6 cases per 100,000.

It has now moved into the amber section and has 29.2 per 100,000, according to data from PHE – which includes figures from the week up to October 18.

As infection rates across Kent have continued to rise – the area has remained low in case numbers.


 

Areas of the country that have the highest rates of infection are seen shaded in dark red – this includes areas of the North West.

These places have more than 300 cases per 100,000 of the population.

Knowsley currently has the highest rate of infection in the country 662.9 cases per 100,000.

The red markings on the map indicate a high rate of infection and these are places that have 100-300 cases per 100,000.

Stockport is at the top of the red list with 299.9 cases per 100,000.

The amber markings indicate places that have 20-100 cases per 100,000 and South Northamptonshire is at the top of this list with 99.5 cases per 100,000.

HIGHEST RATE – dark red

Areas that also remain in the amber category include Norfolk, where factory workers have just tested positive for the virus.

The company’s site in Great Witchingham, Norfolk, has seen 75 of its staff receive positive tests for the killer bug.

Last week, 72 employees at its facility near Halesworth, Suffolk, tested positive for Covid-19 – bringing the total number to 147.

Suffolk is also in the amber category.

Around 600 staff at the Norfolk site were tested – with some tests still being processed.  

When it comes to the area with the least infections, the Isle of Wight is at the bottom with 24.7 cases per 100,000 of the population.

But those who are living in highly infected areas in England face the toughest restrictions – which will be reviewed every month.

RED – high rate

People living in Tier 3 areas are not allowed to mix either indoors or outdoors.

Pubs and bars will also close in those areas, but restaurants will continue serving food until 10pm following a major backlash from regional leaders.

Areas in Tier Two will have the same restrictions plus a ban on households mixing.

Tier One — medium risk — will see current social distancing measures, the “rule of six” and a pub curfew of 10pm enforced.

AMBER – medium rate

Areas on the map shaded in amber have cases between 20 and 100 per 100,000 of the population.
