New data shows Covid-19 cases falling in parts of England

A majority of regions in England have seen their coronavirus case rates fall as Professor Neil Ferguson hails 'sign of plateauing' and Professor Jonathan Van-Tam talks of 'the last few furlongs of this race, like in the Grand National'

There is hope on the horizon for weary England as Covid-19 case rates have fallen in most regions, according to the latest data.

While yesterday the Department of Health reported the highest ever death toll in the coronavirus pandemic so far - 1,564 - the case rate is dipping in London and other major regions, the latest weekly surveillance report from Public Health England says.

In London, which continues to have the highest rate of any region, the rate of new cases stood at 864.9 per 100,000 people in the seven days to January 10, down from 1,043.9 in the previous week.

The other regions recording a week-on-week fall are the East Midlands, eastern England, north-east England, south-east England and Yorkshire & the Humber.

Three regions recorded a week-on-week increase: north-west England, south-west England and the West Midlands.
