Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.

Across England, 81 per cent of people aged 12 and above had received a second dose of the jab.

Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
