Coronavirus infection rates in parts of Suffolk and north Essex are almost halving according to new figures. 

The latest data compares the week to February 2 with the week to January 26. 

The last four days are not included as the data is not thought to be complete enough.

Ipswich saw the largest drop of any district from 339.6 cases per 100,000 in the week to January 26 to 222 cases per 100,000 in the week to February 2.
