Leicester appears to be the first city where a local lockdown could be imposed – with new confirmed cases on the rise.

But this is by no means an isolated case, with 36 cities or counties across England now seeing a new wave of cases.

Some, like Doncaster, have seen a larger weekly increase in new cases, and most of the areas experiencing further increases in Covid-19 are those of densely populated urban areas.

The government has always said it will consider regional and local closures if necessary, and the Department of Health and Social Affairs (DHSC) has deployed four mobile test sites in Leicester and made available thousands of test kits to home.

Rising cases

New confirmed cases are on the rise in 36 of the 151 top-level local authorities in England as the nation began to emerge from isolation.

Some, such as Sunderland, York and the Isle of Wight, detected only one case in the week before June 26, but did not detect any cases the week before.

Others see a much higher number of new cases, including Leicester.

And the cases are increasing every week in the city – from 39 cases in the week to June 19 to 41 cases in the week to June 26.
