* 9th April 2021 – Change to case reporting and revision to historical case data in England. The way cases are reported has changed. This has resulted in the removal of a number of previously reported cases in England.
This affects newly reported cases on 9 April 2021. Regions and local authorities do not show the actual number of new cases reported. UK and England numbers of newly reported cases have been adjusted and correctly reflect new cases reported.
Newly reported cases at regional and local authority level within England are calculated as the daily change in the total number of cases. This means that for 9 April 2021, these show significantly lower numbers or zero, and should not be considered as the actual number of new cases reported on that date.
