Areas of Cornwall with increase in Covid cases have doubled since weekend on map

The number of Cornwall areas with weekly increases in Covid cases has more than doubled since the weekend, although overall figures continue to drop.

That’s when Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly recorded a total of 1,447 cases in the seven days leading up to Friday, September 17, the most recent data available.

This is 330 fewer cases than the week before, marking an 18.6% drop.

The case rate is now an average of 251.4 cases per 100,000 people, down from 308.4 cases last Wednesday.


The number of clusters showing week-over-week increases in cases is similar to a week ago, with 18 from 19 last Wednesday, but double the number in the weekend update of Saturday, when only eight saw increases.

These are: St Day & Lanner (31, over three), Pool & Illogan Highway (70, over 37), Illogan & Portreath (19, over 11), Truro East (22, over eight), Newquay East (37, over four), St Columb Major & St Mawgan (31, over six), Trewoon, Coombe & Foxhole (25, over four), St Austell Central (39, over 11), Tywardreath & Fowey ( 15, over three), Lostwithiel & Penwithick (42, up from 13), Roche & Goss Moor (28, up from seven), Padstow & St Issey (11, up from five), Gunnislake & Calstock (13 , up two), Launceston (42, up five).

Camborne continues to be the city with the highest number of cases in all of its three groups, although the figure is declining.

He saw 103 cases recorded in those seven days, eight fewer than a week earlier.

However, the neighboring Pool & Illogan Highway is the individual cluster with the highest number of weekly cases, registering 70 – up 37 from the previous week.

The map shows positive cases by “average super exit area” – the name the government gives to the break-up of large towns and clusters of neighboring towns and villages, with clusters covering a larger area than others. .

The minimum population in each area is 5,000 and the average is 7,200.
