The Rose Hill area of Derby has become the epicentre of Covid-19 in the city, resulting in the council trying to recruit businesses and religious leaders to help spread a safety message.

Government data shows that the area defined as Rose Hill and Castleward – based on grouping a population size of 7,500 people – has had more Covid-19 cases in a week than anywhere else in Derbyshire.

In new data, for the week to January 8, Rose Hill and Castleward clocked 147 cases, with a rate of 1,240 per 100,000 people.

Its closest rival is bordering New Normanton with 106 cases (27 per cent fewer), followed by Sinfin with 88 (40 per cent fewer).
