The battle to contain the Covid outbreak in England has hit a major milestone after the number of people catching coronavirus dropped below 1% in every region.
Figures released by Public Health England (PHE) show the number of cases are falling all over England, although major regional differences remain.
In Yorkshire and Humber, the rate of new cases stood at 97.6 per 100,000 people in the seven days to March 7 – the highest rate of any region, but down from 115.6 in the previous week.
The East Midlands recorded the second-highest rate: 84.0, down from 122.9.
South-west England recorded the lowest rate: 32.3, down from 43.9.
