The Wiltshire case rate for the seven days leading up to February 3 is at 1059.4 per 100,000 people , according to the UK Coronavirus Dashboard.

This is much higher than the UK average of 864.1 cases per 100,000 people for this period. 

There were 5340 Covid cases recorded in Wiltshire for the latest seven day period, which is a decrease of 10.6% from the previous period.
