Top 32 coronavirus hotspots in England as Brits warned to expect ‘bumpy’ few months

The British government is fighting hard to suppress a spike in coronavirus infections, but the daily number of cases has skyrocketed in the last few weeks

Despite restrictions, some local neighbourhoods are still hotspots for the life-threatening bug.

Britain is currently coping with its second wave, which means some areas have had to tighten restrictions.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson also warned Brits face a “bumpy” period through to Christmas.

A Mirror Online analysis of Government data has revealed the 32 local neighbourhoods currently worst-hit by Covid-19.

The areas, predominantly in towns and cities in the Midlands and North of England, registered the highest numbers of new cases in the 7 days up to September 29.

After falling over the summer, coronavirus cases have surged in the UK in recent weeks, reaching a record 12,872 in one day yesterday.

The figure, a marked increase on previous days, was attributed to a “computing error” causing a backlog of previously unreported infections.
