Dorset’s weekly COVID-19 rates decreasing to one of the lowest in the country

Coronavirus statistics on phone

Dorset has the seventh lowest rate of new COVID-19 cases of every council area in England according to latest data up to 10th December.

The current rate in the Dorset Council area currently stands at 43.3 per 100,000 people, whereas the rate for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council area is 68.8 per 100,000 people.

The data is created based on tests carried out by laboratories from the Government’s testing program, as well as the wider community, and is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 of the population.

It has been reported that 222 of 315 local areas in England have seen an increase in cases, whereas only 91 saw a fall. Two areas are unchanged.

Swale in Kent is keeping its number one spot with the highest new cases rate, with 1,008 new cases in the week leading up to 10th December. This is the equivalent of 671.6 cases per 100,000 people, which has increased from 593 per 100,000 that was reported in the week leading up to 3rd December.
