CORONAVIRUS infections have fallen in 98 per cent of local authorities across England, new data has revealed.
There are just five areas where cases are still rising and this interactive map reveals if your area is one of them.
It comes as data today also revealed cases of the virus have plunged across London in the last week.
Data released this morning shows cases have dropped by 50.1 per cent in one of the most deprived boroughs – Tower Hamlets in East London – in the week to January 29.
Cases had dropped by 746 meaning the current figure for the borough is 742.
Other boroughs to experience a dramatic reduction in Covid-19 cases include Greenwich (46.4 per cent), Hackney (45.1 per cent), City of London (45.1 per cent) and Waltham Forest (44.2 per cent).
London’s public health chief Professor Kevin Fenton said he wants to see the seven-day coronavirus rate fall below 100 new infections per 100,000 Londoners before the lockdown is eased.
In the week to January 29 that figure was 309.1.
While infections have dropped across the capital there are five areas in England where cases are still rising.
Data from Public Health England (PHE) shows that East Lindsey in Lincolnshire has seen a rise in the seven days up to January 30.
Cases in the area have jumped from 98.1 to 130.5.
Despite this, local health officials said the increase “wasn’t too concerning”.
Andy Fox, Consultant in Public Health at Lincolnshire County Council told BBC Radio Lincolnshire earlier this week that they were more concerned with the “trend over time”.
Torbay in Devon has also seen a rise in cases, going from 160.0 to 182.7.
Rutland in the East Midlands has also seen an increase, climbing from 180.3 to 200.4.
Earlier this week the local council in Rutland urged residents to not drive to nearby villages for their daily exercise.
Mike Sandys, director for public health at Rutland County Council said: “To try and keep the infection rate down in Rutland, we urge everyone to start and finish their daily exercise in the town or village where they live, if at all possible.”
Hartlepool in the North East has also seen a rise in infection levels, jumping from 313.9 to 329.9 in the last seven days.
Healthcare professionals in the area said that despite a rise in cases, hospital admissions in the area have been decreasing.
