Neighbourhoods in districts from across Kent make up the 10 most infected areas.

In 42 Kent neighbourhoods, COVID is spreading faster than average in England.

With an infection rate of 65.4, Canterbury St Stephen's is one of the least infected areas of the county.

Istead Rise & Meopham in Gravesham has the second highest rate in Kent

Neighbourhoods with fewer than three cases are not included in the data.

Of the 377 local areas in the UK, 67 (18 per cent) have seen a week-on-week rise in rates and 310 (82 per cent) have seen a fall.

However the level of hospitalisations has led the Government to draw up plans for an October “firebreak" lockdown, a senior Government scientist has told I.

A full lockdown is unlikely and would be a last resort, but there are a range of measures the government could introduce.

Below is a list of all Kent neighbourhoods, ranked from highest to lowest according to infection rates.

The rates are based on data collected in the seven days to September 12.
