Coronavirus: Sheffield emerges as infection hotspot with highest concentration of cases anywhere outside London.
Independent Sheffield has been revealed as the UK’s biggest coronavirus hotspot outside of London. There are 62 confirmed cases of Covid-19 for every 100,000 people in the South Yorkshire city – more than anywhere else excepting the capital – according to new research.
The findings – by the Centre for Cities think tank – suggest the contagion there is greater than in bigger urban centres, including Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester, where the comparable infection rates are 56, 40 and 31 cases for every 100,000 people respectively.
