The Leeds areas with the highest Covid infection rates as lockdown restrictions are eased

The next phase of the lockdown easing is underway in Leeds today (Monday) as the Government's "stay at home" order comes to an end.

These Leeds areas have the highest Covid rates in the city:

From today, groups of up to six people, from any number of households, or a group of any size from up to two households, are allowed to gather in parks and gardens in England, and outdoor sports facilities can reopen. This ends the “stay at home” order, but people are being encouraged to “stay local” where possible.

The infection rate has remained stable in Leeds over the last few weeks, increasingly slightly in the seven days to March 23. It now stands at 111.5 new cases per 100,000 people.

But infection rates vary across the city's Middle Super Output Areas, a geographic measure of about 8,000 people. Here we reveal which Leeds areas had the highest infection rates in the seven days to March 23, the latest available figures.
