Covid infection rates are rising in 80 per cent of areas across England new figures show as questions remain over the country's unlocking on June 21.

Of the 315 local regions across the country, 251 have seen an increase for the seven days to June 4.

Burnley, South Ribble, Blackburn with Darwen, Stockport and Salford have been confirmed as the areas with the biggest week-on-week climb.

The figures are based on the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in either a lab-reported or rapid lateral flow test.

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

But of the local areas in England, 59 places – 19 per cent – have seen a fall, and five are unchanged.

It comes as half of Brits want Boris Johnson to delay the June 21 lifting of curbs, with three in four saying people should go on wearing face coverings.

An exclusive Mirror poll revealed 50 per cent believed the Prime Minister should postpone triggering Step Four of the Government's roadmap.

Speculation is mounting that the national unlocking could be put back by a fortnight.

Blackburn with Darwen in Lancashire continues to have the highest rate, with 833 new cases in the seven days to June 4.

That is the equivalent of 556.5 cases per 100,000 people, up from 436.9 in the seven days to May 28.

Bolton in Greater Manchester has the second highest rate, down from 381.2 to 320.3, with 921 new cases.

Rossendale in Lancashire has the third highest, down slightly from 316.2 to 310.6, with 222 new cases.
