With the spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus continuing to take hold in Cornwall, cases have fallen from 23 in the week ending May 26 to 849 in the most recent data for the seven days through June 23.
Although it did not result in a significant spike in hospitalizations compared to previous waves with four people hospitalized on Tuesday, June 22, one of whom was on a ventilator, the large spike in cases led to great disruption in the worst areas. most affected with reception centers, schools and colleges forced to close or request the self-isolation of certain groups.
In the daily updates provided by the government coronavirus dashboard, the updates for which zones have cases are broken down into micro-zones, meaning that for many of our major towns in Cornwall a location can be represented by up to three different areas, depending on population sizes.
The latest update, for the week ending June 23, shows that there are 13 areas in Cornwall reporting less than three cases of coronavirus, meaning they are not classified as a coronavirus cluster because the government does not confirm the number of cases below three in order to protect the identity of affected individuals.

Some areas have suffered the brunt of the coronavirus outbreak with the city with the largest outbreak, Newquay having more than ten times the number of cases than Penzance, although the two cities have populations of similar size.
Other towns with major epidemics include St Ives and Carbis Bay, which recently hosted the G7 summit in addition to Falmouth, Penryn (including the Ponsanooth cluster area, Mabe Burnthouse and Constantine due to the location of the campus Falmouth University Penryn falling here), St Columb Minor / Major, Truro and St Austell.
By comparison, Bude, Camelford (including Tresmeer), Launceston and Liskeard have fewer than three cases in these areas.
