  • Weekly number and percentage of care homes reporting a suspected or confirmed outbreak of COVID-19 to PHE by local authorities, regions and PHE centres
  • The PHE dashboard can be found here:  Our daily reporting includes deaths that have occurred in all settings where there has been a positive COVID-19 test, including hospitals, care homes and the wider community. The report also includes case rates per 100,000 resident population at lower tier local authority level. Also, positive cases from testing in the wider community (also known as pillar 2) at UTLA and LTLA level in England have been added to the daily COVID-19 dashboard. Although this does not affect the total number of cases in England, it shows an increase in the UTLA/ LTLA figures which have previously only included pillar 1.
