The latest figures show an increase in coronavirus cases in five northeastern regions.
In the seven days leading up to October 2, the number has risen in Gateshead, Sunderland, Newcastle, North Tinside and North Barland.
Of the seven east-east local authority areas, Gateshead currently has the highest rate of infection, with an additional 776 recorded cases compared to the previous week.
Infection rates have declined in southern Tyneside and county Durham, but increased in northern Tyneside, although Northumberland has the lowest infection rates in the northeast, it has also increased slightly.
Newcastle and Sunderland each saw more than 900 new cases over a seven-day period.
There are two restrictions on the whole of the Northeast, meaning families cannot mix at home to prevent further spread of the virus.
Nationally, Northwest and Yorkshire remain the most affected areas, with the Midlands rapidly emerging as the next area of concern.

Tory ministers are rejecting calls for a full-fledged national lockdown, as in France, but also for a new, even tougher Tier 4.

The latest figures show a new case for seven days on October 26, revolving at a rate of 100,000 people per seven days.
The figures are based on tests conducted in laboratories – one of the pillars of the government’s experimental program – and in the larger population – two pillars.
From 27 to 30 October, the most recent four-day data has been omitted because it is incomplete and does not reflect the actual number of cases.
