And the figures show cases continuing to rise sharply as the battle against the Omicron variant goes on.
Nationally, in the seven days to December 28 there were 948,725 cases at a rate of 1,414.3 per 100,000 people.
Closer to home, the North West recorded 124,481 at a rate of 1,689.6 with Blackpool seeing 1,959 cases at a rate of 1,415.7.
In the town, every area saw a significant rise in cases, one by more than 400% and all but two by more than 100%.
On Monday morning Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi insisted however “there’s nothing in the data” to suggest further coronavirus measures will be needed later this week.
