Bradford is now among the top 10 cities in the UK with the largest coronavirus pandemic cases.

According to Wednesday’s update of the rolling seven-day rate of new cases of Covid-19 for every local authority area in England, Bradford is now ninth in the country.

The statistics, for the seven days to October 31, are based on COVID-19 tests conducted in laboratories and the broader community. The rate is expressed as the number of fresh cases per 100,000 people.

The data from the last four days from 1 November to 4 November has been omitted as it is inadequate and does not indicate the actual number of cases. Bradford’s COVID-19 infection rate for the seven days to October 24 stood at 490.8, or 2,649 cases.

However, in the seven days to October 31, that figure soared to 527.6 and 2,848 new cases.
