Coronavirus rates have risen week-on-week in four parts of Leicestershire, according to latest verified data.
Public Health England released statistics on the virus in 315 English council areas last night after Prime minister Boris Johnson set out details of the country’s gradual ‘roadmap' out of lockdown.
The figures relate to seven days up to Thursday, February 18 and show Leicester’s infection rate remains roughly the same, at 253.5 cases per 100,000 people.
Although the number has dropped slightly in itself, rates are falling much faster elsewhere in the country so the city has been pushed up to fifth place in the overall infection rate list.
Rutland county is also in the top 10 ten of local authority areas with its rate rising to 237.9 cases per 100,000 people.
