The rapid spread of coronavirus infections is continuing in England.

It comes as Boris Johnson admitted hospital intensive care units (ICUs) face being overwhelmed unless COVID-19 rates are brought under control.

The latest official figures on the coronavirus dashboard show more than 36,000 people are in UK hospitals with coronavirus, including almost 3,500 on ventilation.

Johnson’s stark warning came as the UK’s daily reported death toll reached a new high, with 1,564 fatalities recorded within 28 days of a positive test.

The list below contains the latest available data on seven-day infection rates in English local authority areas.
