Coventry’s Covid-19 rate has fallen for the second day in a row.
The city entered Tier 3 today (December 2) – the Very High level – meaning hospitality businesses cannot open and people cannot meet other households indoors.
The seven day rolling infection rate stood at 177.92 per 100,000 people on November 27, the latest date reliable data is available for on the Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull dashboard.
That is down from 188.15 per 100,000 people on November 26 and 193.80 on November 25.
The dashboard shows positive cases being recorded in the city appear to have stabilised.
On November 27 there were 114 cases recorded, the same as the day before.
Cases and rate are one of five key areas looked at by the government when it comes to deciding what Tier an area should be in.
Coventry, alongside Warwickshire and Solihull, was placed into Tier 3 restrictions today (December 2) after the city was in Tier 2 prior to the second national lockdown.
It is hoped that the city will be downgraded to Tier 2 when the first government review is undertaken on December 16.
