We are using lab-confirmed cases which are dated by when the test was actually done rather than when the result comes in. That means they can take time to process and report. From experience, we ignore the most recent 5 days in the data and calculate the total for the week leading up to that point.
The date shown at the top is the most recent date for any area in the data and does not necessarily apply to every Local Authority. Click on a specific area to see when it was last updated.
