The city recorded an infection rate of 377.6 new cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to August 17 - down 9.6 per cent from the previous week.

But some Leeds neighbourhoods have much higher rates than the city's average. Here we reveal the Leeds areas with the highest infection rates.

The figures for the seven days to August 17 are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two). The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people. Images are for illustrative purposes only.
