The Centre for Progressive Policy have published a table revealing the 50 local authorities (and related Clinical Commissioning Groups) that are facing the highest level of risk to life from Covid-19 and indicates where resources are most needed.

This risk rating will be updated in real time on a week by week basis as the Covid-19 case numbers rise and fall.

My LA is currently number one on this list. I have previously started a thread about Birmingham and the West Midlands being a CV hotspot, so would welcome any additional thoughts.

Key report findings:

The West Midlands is the new immediate battleground against COVID-19. It has a relatively high number of cases and an even higher level of systemic vulnerability.

Big cities like Liverpool, Nottingham and Manchester are not quite in the top 20 riskiest places yet because they have a relatively low case load, but they have a high level of systemic vulnerability. They could be next.Adult social care has been largely overlooked during this crisis, but a poor performing sector in places like Middlesbrough, Barnsley and the Wirral could exacerbate pressures on the rest of the healthcare system.
