South Thane MP Craig McKinley said he had tried to get “rational clarification” from health officials about the additional reasons, but had “no answers”.

The Conservative MP said: “As a country, we are particularly good at collecting data and statistics, but I am very disappointed.

“There is no publication of the age stratification of infected people, nor does it take care of homes, hospitals, schools, shops, places of worship or households due to poor adherence to possible sources of infection – rules and guidelines? Or is it none of this?

“I find it hard to believe that East Kent residents are different in their approach anywhere else. There must be an underlying reason. ”

Hull has the second-largest covid-19 rate in England, while the figure has dropped from 785.3 per 100,000 people to 615.1 in seven days from November 1815.

Lincolnshire, meanwhile, has the third-highest coronavirus case rate on the coast of East Lindsey, down slightly from 517.9 in the same period.
