About the data

Our data shows the number of COVID-19 cases in the 7 day period stated at the top of the page. This provides a better indication of local trends than individual daily figures, which can fluctuate considerably from day to day. Figures are given as a rate per 100,000 people to make comparisons between different areas more meaningful.

The smaller number below the main figure shows the change compared to the previous 7 days (for example 13 to 19 November would be compared to 6 to 12 November).

To provide a more complete picture of what the data tells us, we use a full week’s data. COVID-19 test results typically take a few days to show up in the data we use and so this can make figures for the most recent days appear lower than they really are. For this reason, we do not include data for the most recent 4 days.

Rates may differ slightly from those published by Public Health England as these are produced as a snapshot in time, and do not include cases that were confirmed later on. Other sources may publish figures for different time periods and so they may not match ours.

More detailed Kent data is available on the COVID-19 page on the Kent Public Health Observatory website.
