To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the National COVID-19 surveillance report: 2 October 2020 (week 40) published by Public Health England on 2 October 2020, what the weekly case rate per 100,000 cases by Index of Multiple Deprivation decile was in that reporting period; and if he will include data in that format in future covid-19 surveillance reports.

The national COVID-19 surveillance report published on 2 October included graphs of weekly COVID-19 case rate per 100,000 population by Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) quintile and age group (10-39 year olds). The weekly COVID-19 case rate per 100,000 population by IMD quintile for week 39 (between 21 and 27 September 2020) is shown in the following table.

There is no longer a COVID-19 surveillance report but IMD quantiles will be included in the slide set accompanying the new combined flu and COVID-19 report, which published weekly.
