Regional Covid-19 Prevalence
The ONS have created sub-regions across the UK for the purposes of providing Covid-19 positivity estimates for the residential populations on a lower level than the four nations. In Scotland, these sub-regions are comprised of Health Boards. Please note, the reference week for sub-regional positivity estimates is 17 to 23 April 2022 for England and Northern Ireland, and 18 to 23 April for Scotland and Wales.
The sub-region with the highest modelled estimate for the percentage of people testing positive was CIS Region 127 (NHS Lanarkshire) at 4.48% (95% credible interval: 3.83% to 5.26%). This region includes the local authorities North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire. The sub-region with the lowest modelled estimate was CIS Region 126 (NHS Lothian), at 4.01% (95% credible interval: 3.41% to 4.64%). This region includes the local authorities City of Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian (see Figure 12) . Figure 12 is also available as a dynamic map.
In the week leading up to 24 April 2022, Na h-Eileanan Siar had the highest combined PCR and LFD weekly case rate by specimen date, reporting 909 cases per 100,000 population. Dundee City had the lowest weekly combined LFD and PCR case rate in the same time period, reporting 321 cases per 100,000. The total combined LFD and PCR weekly case rates by specimen date per 100,000 had increased in 1 local authority in the week leading up to 24 April 2022 compared with the weekly case rate leading up to 17 April 2022, while 31 local authorities saw a decrease in the same period (Figure 13).
