UK COVID-19 Tracker

Unfortunately due to the way the graphs on this page are generated, they don't look great on smaller screens. You may have better luck rotating your device to a landscape orientation.

This is a collection of what I consider to be the most useful COVID-19 data for the UK. It is updated from the latest source data every 30 minutes.

Regional Trends

English Region Triage (online) Cases Hospital admissions
East of England -7% 9% 0%
London 2% 6% 20%
Midlands 3% -12% -22%
North East and Yorkshire 7% -5% -14%
North West 0% 29% -10%
South East -2% -9% -2%
South West 10% -12% 67%

Scores are calculated from 7-day changes in a 7-day average.

General Situation

Where data is likely to be incomplete due to reporting delays, a grey area is shown. Red vertical markers show the date when restrictions were imposed, green lines show restrictions being relaxed. Unless otherwise stated, trend lines are a 7-day rolling average.

NHS 111 Triage Data

This data shows the number of instances of people contacting NHS 111 with suspected COVID-19 symptoms, both online and over the phone. It should act as a leading indicator of any COVID-19 outbreaks.

Caveats: the criteria used to triage users have changed several times. The phone triage data does not cover 999 calls in some areas of the country. More info.

Public Health England data at LTLA level is mapped to NHS England regions using this mapping, which is not exact. Pillar 2 data was added to the Scottish numbers on 15 June, and a crude correction has been applied to smooth this discontinuity.
