THESE are the Bradford areas with the highest and lowest Covid-19 infection rates over the past week.

The overall infection rate in Bradford has been falling slowly over the past week, and currently stands at 192.3 infections per 100,000 people in the seven days to February 14, down from 222.3 the week before.

The national average in England is 133.4, so Bradford is still well above the national average and has some way to go to bring infections down to an acceptable level, but it is moving in the right direction.

While some areas are doing well at bringing infections down and have rates way below the Bradford average, there are still some areas struggling to bringing down infection rates despite being in lockdown for six weeks.

Bringing infection rates down to a low level are crucial to allow lockdown rules to be eased and to let society reopen, as there will be less virus circulating in the population.

Areas are broken down by Middle Super Output Areas, a hyper-local method of breaking down figures to areas with a population of 7,200 people.
