As of Tuesday (June 16), the number of cases in Derbyshire is 1,779. 

Of those, there are 239 cases in the High Peak. 

In Tameside, there are 833 confirmed cases to date. 

Meanwhile, in Oldham, the number of cases is 1,139. 

As of Tuesday, the number of deaths at local hospital trusts is listed by NHS England as follows: 

  • Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust  -  515
  • Stockport Foundation Trust  -  203
  • Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust  - 178

The above figures take into account where patients have died in hospitals and had tested positive for COVID-19, or where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.  

The R 'reproduction' rate - which shows the average number of people who become infected by a person with Covid-19 - in the North West is thought to currently be between 0.7 and 1.0 - with 0.8 being the most likely. In England, it is between 0.8 and 1.0, a range slightly higher than for the UK as a whole, where it remains between 0.7 and 0.9.

In total, there are now 298,136 confirmed cases in the UK as of Tuesday - a daily increase of 1,279. 

There have also been 41,969 deaths in the UK - an increase of 233 in the space of 24 hours. 

In England, there have been 157,545 cases and 37,524 deaths to date. 

In total, 6,981,493 people have been tested for the virus - a daily increase of 113,107.

According to the ONS, there were eight deaths from Covid-19 in care homes in Derbyshire between 5 June and 12 June. 

There were four deaths in Tameside between the same period, and just one in Oldham. 

In England, from 10 April up to 12 June, there were 11,880 deaths in care homes from Covid-19 - including 266 in the week between 5 June and 12 June. 

This is based on reporting from care home operators to the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and these figures will be published every Tuesday as part of ONS's weekly deaths release.
