Wirral's Covid-19 infection rate continues to rise ahead of lockdown

WIRRAL'S coronavirus infection rate has continued to rise, according to the latest figures.

In the seven days to September 17, the figure rose to 106.2 per 100,000 people, with 344 new positive cases.

That's up from 313 the previous week - a rate of 96.6.

In Liverpool the figure during the same period was 138.1 per 100,000 people, with 688 new cases.

Because of this surge in cases, Wirral and the wider Merseyside region is now an 'area of intervention' and local lockdown restrictions have been imposed on the area.

Coming into effect on Tuesday, the measures mean:

These new measures will be kept under constant review to reduce the spread of the virus and save lives.

The figures, for the seven days to September 17, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

Here is the list in full.
