Which region is being hit hardest by scarlet fever?

Which region is being hit hardest by scarlet fever? A map today highlighted the spread of scarlet fever across England and Wales amid the highest levels of cases since the 1960s.

Government data shows 15,549 have been struck down by the 'Victorian' infection so far this year.

This is almost double the 8,728 cases in the first 13 weeks of 2016, considered the worst year for scarlet fever in five decades.

Officials are unsure as to why it is continuing its rampage across Wales and England, but experts have blamed a fall in living standards. The Daily Mail
