The latest weekly rate of Covid-19 in Liverpool is 329.5 per 100,000 population and the latest positivity testing rate* is 13.6%.                                                                                       

There is now a widespread community transmission of the virus in Liverpool, with new positive Covid-19 cases recorded mainly in the working age population. 

The majority of cases (50%) were in those aged under 40 years, whereas 30% cases were in those aged 40-59 yrs. Of all the confirmed cases in the last seven days 52% were female and 48% were male. Of those cases where ethnicity was given, 84% people were recorded as White British and 16% people were from a Black and Minority Ethnic background. 

Compared to the previous week, we have seen a slight decrease in rates of new infections in the city, however the current 7-day rate remains very high. The rate of new infections in older people is particularly worrying at the current very high level, resulting in increased pressure on hospitals and deaths from Covid for weeks to come.
