*PHE has now updated the way it records the location of people who have been tested for COVID-19. Counts of cases and deaths at sub-national level have been updated to reflect this.
Cases are now allocated to the person’s area of residence. From 16 November 2020, PHE has updated the way it records the location of people who test positive or negative for COVID-19.
It now prioritises addresses given at the point of testing over the details registered on a patient’s NHS Summary Care Record. This better reflects the distribution of cases and testing.
However, it may give rise to differences in previously reported numbers of cases and rates in some areas.
The change has been retrospectively applied to tests carried out from 1 September 2020, and data in the dashboard was updated to reflect this change on 16 November 2020.
Due to reallocation of cases in this way, the number of cases reported by local authority may be artificially high or low on 16 November 2020.
In Warrington this has resulted in a reduction in the overall numbers.
