By Dominic Robertson | Telford | Coronavirus | Published:

The rate of new coronovirus cases in Shropshire has been revealed in new government figures.

The cumulative number of coronavirus deaths in Shropshire hospitals by date of death as of July 1. Data: NHS England. Figures likely to increase as further deaths announced

The fresh government data, which will be used to make decisions on imposing local lockdowns when rates rise across the country, comes as the last recorded Covid-19 death at a Shropshire NHS health trust was now 12 days ago.

The latest Public Health England snapshot is for the week ending June 21 and shows a rate of new weekly cases of 13.7 per 100,000 people in Shropshire and of 8.4 in Telford & Wrekin.

In Leicester, where a 'local lockdown' has seen fresh restrictions imposed, the rate was 140.2. That is more than double the rate of Bradford, which is second highest on the list with a rate of 69.4.

Barnsley and Rochdale are third and fourth on the list with rates of 54.7 and 53.6 respectively.

In the West Midlands, Stoke-on-Trent had the highest rate with 18 new cases per 100,000 people while Wolverhampton's rate was 9.9 and Birmingham's 9.6.

In Shropshire the official combined coronavirus death toll remains at 323, with no new deaths announced in hospitals for more than week.

A total of 184 people have died at the county's NHS health trusts – 165 at Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital NHS Trust, 14 at Shropshire Community Health Trust, and five at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital near Oswestry.

Meanwhile the UK death toll, which includes deaths in and out of hospitals, increased by 176 to 43,906 today.

The figures on coronavirus rates, published by Public Health England, show the rate of new cases in each area, based on tests that have been carried out in laboratories (‘pillar 1’ of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (‘pillar 2’).

As such the figures gives a more comprehensive overview of the country than the daily figures for local areas that are published on the Department of Health website, which are based only on pillar 1 testing.
