Coronavirus infection rates have soared in Cambridgeshire in two districts of the province.
But in the good news, rates are down four other places.
Cambridge and Peterborough remain the two places with the highest infection rate. Both cities have an average of more than 200, twice the rate the government needed to put places in local lockdown two weeks ago.
When the national lockdown ends on December 2, the government said it would restore a tiered lockdown system, but with tighter restrictions on places at higher levels.
While the rate has decreased in Cambridge in the week through November 16, the rate is still very high.
The rate in Peterborough has continued to increase, and it is now the place with the highest in the county.
The rate has also increased in Vineland, making it now the third worst affected region. Previously, Vinland had few cases and a low infection rate.
But it is good news for the county’s remaining three counties – Huntingdonshire, East Campus and South Campus – which all saw a drop in the previous week’s rate.
East Campus remains the least affected part of the county, and has half the number of cases compared to the next least affected area in the county.
