This data aggregates the local authority (UTLA) data reported daily to Public Health England, at the Primary Urban Area (PUA) level for England. This graph does not provide data for all PUAs as only upper-tier local authorities whose geography could directly be matched to PUA geography have been considered in the analysis.
It does not take into account the number of Covid-19 cases which have not been attributed to any local authority- hence potential differences with the total number of cases in England.
This data represents the number of cumulative cases recorded in each city, controlled by population size (per 100,000 inhabitants). Cases include people who have recovered. At the moment, there is no death data available at the local level.
This graph will be updated daily. The data can be downloaded from the “Duplicate and Edit” button on the top right.
It should be acknowledged that this data might not represent the place of residence of confirmed cases, but in some cases the location of the hospital which reported the data, where the patient has been tested. The data provided here is therefore likely to be an underestimate of the total number of cases in an area, as only confirmed cases (tested positive) are recorded.
The rates may be affected by geographical variation in testing. Local data on testing would help address this bias, but it is not currently available at the local authority level in England.
Confirmed cases here refer to cases reported positive (lab-confirmed cases) to Public Health England. Duplicate tests for the same person are removed.
Welsh local data has been added to this case tracker on 7 April, and will be updated daily.
This time-series data has been updated on the 15th of April, following the publication of new data for local authorities by Public Health England for all dates. To ensure this tracker is accurate, data for all dates will be updated every day in each of the cities covered by this analysis.
On the 15th of May, 22 new PUA have been added to the case tracker.
Nowhere is feeling the economic and social impact of Covid-19 more than UK’s cities and largest towns. From a public health perspective, Coronavirus has touched every part of the UK, but its economic impact will be bigger in some places than others.Read more
