They are also on the up in eight neighbourhoods within Crawley.

There were 260,691 positive cases in the UK in the week ending March 3, a 2% increase on the week before.

Some 186 of the UK’s local authority areas (49%) saw cases rise in the past week, with East Ayrshire in Scotland seeing a surge of 83.4%.

The lifting of many restrictions, waning effectiveness of boosters and the spread of the highly contagious BA.2 ‘stealth Omicron’ variant have all been touted as potential reasons for rising infection rates.

At a regional level, Scotland had the highest case rate in the week to March 3, at 969.4 cases per 100,000 residents.

This was followed by Northern Ireland, with 790.2 cases per 100,000 residents. The lowest case rate was in Wales, with 182.8 cases per 100,000 residents.

The figures include both positive PCR and lateral flow tests, except in Wales where only PCRs are counted.

They include people infected with Covid-19 for the first time as well as reinfections.

At neighbourhood level, Covid-19 case rates have been published for the week to March 3.
