Cumbria’s neighbourhood Covid hot spots as some areas remain major problem for county

Although cases of Covid-19 are decreasing in Cumbria the case rate is still above the national average with some areas more than double this.

Across the county, cases in the last seven days decreased by 229 cases taking the case rate per 100,000 people to 404.4.

This is compared to 354.6 per 100,000 people nationally.

Askam and Dalton North recorded the largest number of cases per 100,000 people in the last week with 949.0.

An interactive map produced by government using data from Public Health England shows how many people have tested positive for the virus in each area during a seven-day period.
