Every district in Suffolk currently has a coronavirus infection rate of below 100 cases per 100,000 people, according to latest data. 

Latest data released by the government compares the seven days to February 15 with the week to February 8. 

Statistics from the past four days are not considered complete enough for inclusion. 

The data showed that no district in Suffolk had reported an infection rate of above 100 cases per 100,00 people. 

Ipswich remained the district with the highest infection rate at 97.1 cases per 100,000. 

Mid Suffolk had the lowest, at 48.1 cases per 100,000. 

The case rate across the border in north Essex, however, remains higher in most districts.
