Public Health England is adjusting its approach to test positivity and testing rate metrics.
To date, any repeat tests for individuals since pandemic onset have been deduplicated in updated figures. As the likelihood of individuals having multiple tests increases, test count and rate will now only be deduplicated across a narrower 7-day window. The main changes for reports produced by Public Health England Outbreak Surveillance Team will be for positivity (likely decrease but unchanged trend) and total tests reported (increase).)
Each week Public Health England publishes the number of positive cases of COVID-19 recorded in each middle super output areas (MSOAs).
Where the number of cases are below 3, these have been suppressed to maintain confidentiality.
