These are the most recent data from the Cheshire and Merseyside Directors of Public Health 7 and 14 day daily dashboard.
Using data from 19 January 2021, there have been:
- 1151 cases in the previous 7 days
- 1361 cases in the prior 7 days (up to 12 January)

The current estimate for the R number in the North West is 0.9 – 1.2. This means that, on average, 10 infected people will transmit the infection to 9 to 12 other people. It isn’t possible to measure the R number directly, so various information sources are used to estimate it. We show estimates at the regional level here as we have more confidence in them than estimates for smaller geographical areas such as Cheshire East. For a detailed description of what the R number means and how it is calculated see the government guidance page.

Public Health England has updated the way it records the location of people when tested. It now allocates a person to a Local Authority by the address they give at the point of testing. Previously it allocated a person using the address on a patient’s NHS Summary Care Record. This change particularly affects students who are studying in a different Local Authority than their home address on their GP records. This change has been retrospectively applied to all tests carried out from the 1 September 2020.
