Slough is currently in Tier 3 and faces the strictest restrictions under the newly enforced system.

Since the introduction of the three-tiered system following a month-long national lockdown, Slough is still facing higher levels of infection than the UK average.

A further 95 people tested positive in the last day according to the latest government data. 

565 confirmed cases have been reported in the last seven days.

In the seven-day period ending December 10 (the latest available data), a total of 325.7 cases per 100,000 people were reported in Slough.

The average area in England had 159.

When Slough entered Tier 3 on December 3, the average number of cases stood at 242.7 over the seven days before.

According to official data, the average number of cases across England in the seven days leading up to the end of the month-long lockdown stood at 150.6.

This reveals that the number of cases in Slough rose at a much faster rate than the national average, despite facing the strictest restrictions.
