The 9 postcodes stopping West Yorkshire going into tier 2

These are the postcodes in West Yorkshire that are potentially stopping the region from going into tier 2.

Some postcodes in Wakefield, Huddersfield, Halifax, Bradford and Keighley have recorded dangerously high infection rates.

An interactive map, published by Public Health England, shows the rolling number of new cases and infection rates for every local authority area in England.

The map can be broken down into Middle layer Super Output Areas (MSOA)’s, which give us an idea of how individual postcode areas are faring against coronavirus.

The MSOA rates are presented using a colour coding system, with white and green being the lowest rates; and red being the highest.
