Upperton in Eastbourne is the most infected neighbourhood in Sussex.

It has an infection rate of 1490.2, with 104 positive cases in just seven days.

That is a 73.3 per cent increase on the previous seven days.

The NHS is considering plans to discharge patients into hotels as hospitals become swamped with COVID patients, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has confirmed – as he said it was “impossible to know” how long lockdown restrictions might last.

Mr Hancock told Sky News that the government would “look at all options” to relieve pressures on the NHS, with more than 35,000 coronavirus patients currently in hospitals across the UK.
