Wirral's weekly coronavirus case rate is falling again, despite the easing of lockdown restrictions.

The borough had experienced a moderate rise in new cases following the reopening of non-essential shops, gyms and hospitality venues in outdoor settings.

But according to Public Health England, in the seven days to April 30, Wirral's weekly Covid infection rate was 10.8 per 100,000 people, with 35 new cases.

That's down from a rate of 14.5 per 100,000 people seven days earlier, when 47 people tested positive for the virus.

The latest figures mean that Wirral currently has the 47th lowest Covid infection rate across 315 local areas in England, but that is not the lowest in the Liverpool City Region.

Liverpool now has a weekly case rate of 10.2 per 100,000 people and St Helens is at 10.5.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 103 (33%) have seen a rise in rates, 195 (62%) have seen a fall and 17 are unchanged.

The figures, for the seven days to April 30, are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test, by specimen date.

Data for the most recent four days (May 1-4) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

It will become clearer later this week whether the Bank Holiday Weekend has had any adverse effects on Wirral's infection rate.
