The Maldon district continues to have one of the lowest coronavirus infection rates in north Essex.

The latest rolling seven-day infection rate of new cases of coronavirus have been released for the week ending on Sunday.

The figures are based on tests carried out in laboratories, pillar one of the Government's testing programme, and in the wider community, pillar two.

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

In Maldon the infection rate has fallen from 6.2 to 4.6.

This comes as no new cases were recorded on Monday (September 14) in the district.

The total number of cases stands at 156.

Infection rates continue to fall in much of Essex but cases in Chelmsford have seen a rise.

The highest increases across Britain have been seen in Sunderland, where the figure has jumped from 34.2 to 94.3 and in Birmingham, which has shot up from 53 to 88.8.
