The dark red patches show where there have been a rapid rise in Covid cases.

However, hospitals have still not seen a significant increase in patients and the cases are still mainly among the younger age groups who have not yet had a vaccine.

The latest figures cover the seven-day period up to June 30. According to these numbers, the Leamington Brunswick ward still has the highest rate of infections but there has been a slight drop in cases. The area has seen 68 new cases over the seven days, a 27 per cent reduction compared to the previous seven days. But that still means it has an infection rate of 621.7 cases per 100,000 people, which is one of the highest in the Midlands.

Overall, the Warwick district has a rate of 438.3 cases per 100,000.
