Covid hotspots have emerged in 14 areas across Warwickshire where rates have risen to above 1,000.
According to the government’s map, which has data up to December 22, there are areas in the county where rates have soared – with many above the national average of 1,095.2 people per 100,000 population.
It is the south of the county and also Rugby where rates are the highest and these figures are likely to be even higher now as there is a lag on the latest data on the interactive map.
Kenilworth West has the highest rate in the region, at 1,418.01 per 100,000 people, with Kenilworth South and Rugby Eastlands just behind.

In more recent figures on the Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire dashboard, it shows that, in the seven days up to Boxing Day, Warwick had the highest rate in the whole of the West Midlands.
Rugby was just behind in third, with all five areas in the county within the top 20 hardest hit in the region.
Last week health bosses across Coventry and Warwickshire told CoventryLive that one of the reasons behind the rise in rates across our region was more cases among the student and mid 20s age population.
