current vs previous week count

Hi Everyone, 
i have seen that dax doesnt have a previous week function, can someone assist in writing a measure that shows previous week counts to compare to that current week count as shown in the tables below. 

 

The first table is a representation of the actual data and the second table is the desired outcome.

 

If anyone can assist in writing such a measure I would greatly apreciate it,

Thank you

@tatenda24 , Please check the solution by @vapid128 , The solution work well within a year. Across year week need week rank column. Prefer a date table

 

new columns

Week Rank = RANKX(all('Date'),'Date'[Week Start date],,ASC,Dense)
OR
Week Rank = RANKX(all('Date'),'Date'[Year Week],,ASC,Dense) //YYYYWW format

 

New measure examples
This Week = CALCULATE(sum('Table'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])))
Last Week = CALCULATE(sum('Table'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])-1))
