There have been 1001 new cases in the past week, which is also up from the previous seven days where 833 new cases were reported.

It’s believed that areas with infection rates of above 300 could be considered for the highest tier.

The London borough of Redbridge is in the same predicament as their infection rate jumped from 262.4 to 301.4, with the number of new cases rising from 801 to 920.

Essex County Council is hoping that the districts under its jurisdiction will be placed in Tier One – the lowest restrictions.
