COVID-19 Testing Figures

Date Published: 04 July 2020
This page is a press release published in July 2020 - for the latest local and national COVID-19 data, please see our page here

From Thursday 2 July 2020, the UK government’s figures showing a breakdown of COVID-19 cases at local authority level are to include both the results of hospital testing (pillar 1 data) and testing carried out in the wider community (pillar 2 data).

Pillar 2 data has not previously been included in the government’s Upper Tier Authority (UTA) breakdown of COVID-19 cases.

Following the publication of pillar 2 data, UTAs across the country will show a marked increase in confirmed cases, as the results of community testing are shown together with the results of hospital testing for the first time.

In Rutland, as of Thursday 2 July:

  • the number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in hospital is 36
  • the number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the wider community is 52
  • the total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Rutland is therefore 88

Combined pillar 1 and pillar 2 data will be published by the government, on its website.
