Despite Kent being one of the least-infected places in England, a number of neighbourhoods in the county are beginning to show an increase in COVID infection rates.

Lockdown will ease further from tomorrow (March 29), with people set to be allowed to meet outdoors in groups of six and play in grassroots sports.

However, some 70 neighbourhoods in Kent have shown a rise in infection rates in the past week.

Both Thanet and Medway have the most neighbourhoods in Kent with rising infection rates, with 11 neighbourhoods apiece.

The data for infections measures the number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the seven days leading up to March 23, the most recent data available.

It compares that data with the infections registered for the week up to March 16 to see which neighbourhoods have increased the most in the past week.

We've put together a list of the ten neighbourhoods with fastest-increasing infection rates in Kent.
