Cases of coronavirus have risen in more than half of the regions in England, the rolling seven-day average has revealed.

Data, broken down into English council areas, shows that cases rose in 169 of the 315 regions.

The figures, for the seven days to November 16, are based on tests carried out in laboratories and in the wider community.

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Hull continues to have the highest rate in England, with 1,817 new cases recorded in the seven days to November 16 – the equivalent of 699.4 cases per 100,000 people.

This is down from 754.5 in the seven days it recorded to November 9.
