Latest data reveals that 264 areas in England have seen a rise in coronavirus cases in the past week – with many seeing huge jumps in infections.

Figures from Public Health England show that Burley has the highest infection rate – nearly doubling in just seven days.

Knowsley and Liverpool each saw alarming increases between August 20 and Saturday – the latest data available.

Of the 20 worst affected hotspots just two – Bolton and Blackburn with Darwen – have seen a fall in new cases in the past week.

Manchester, Bury and Oldham, which have all had strict lockdown measures in place since the start of last month, are all grappling with a growing number of new cases.

Earlier this afternoon the Department of Health reported there had been 7,143 new coronavirus cases recorded in the most recent 24-hour period, while the death toll rose by 71.

He will be accompanied by the Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance and the Chief Medical Officer Professor Christ Whitty, No10 has confirmed.

The news conference will be focused on the latest numbers, rather than an announcement of new lockdown measures.

The PM’s official spokesman said: “The purpose of that is to provide an update on the latest statistics.

“It is not because there is some specific set of new announcements to make.”
