Public Health England data shows that the rate in Peterborough in the week to August 30 was 429.4 per 100,000 people, based on 870 new cases.

For the week prior the rate was 475.3, with 963 cases diagnosed in the seven days to August 23.

In more than two-thirds of Peterborough Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOAs) there was a fall in the number of newly reported coronavirus cases.

MSOAs are geographic units designed to improve the reporting of small area statistics in England and Wales, with an average of 7,000 people per MSOA. If you're unsure of which your local area falls under, see the Public Health England interactive map.

This MSOA data is based on addresses given at the point of testing to reflect the distribution of cases throughout the city.
