Revealed: Soaring Covid Rates In UK Cities After ‘Missing’ Cases Are Added To Total


A computer glitch in the UK’s Test and Trace system means the true rates of coronavirus in cities such as Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle upon Tyne is far higher than previously thought.

Manchester now has the highest rate in England, with 2,740 cases recorded in the seven days to October 1 – the equivalent of 495.6 cases per 100,000 people, more than double the figure of 223.2 the previous week.

Liverpool has the second highest rate, up in a week from 287.1 to 456.4, with 2,273 new cases, PA Media reports.

Knowsley is in third place, up from 300.3 to 452.1, with 682 new cases.

Other areas recording sharp increases include Newcastle upon Tyne (up from 256.6 to 399.6, with 1,210 new cases); Nottingham (up from 52.0 to 283.9, with 945 new cases); Leeds (up from 138.8 to 274.5, with 2,177 new cases); and Sheffield (up from 91.8 to 233.1, with 1,363 new cases).

All figures are based on Public Health England data published on Sunday night.
