New Covid hotspot in Cornwall on map of clustered cases

For the first time in many weeks, there are more areas of Cornwall showing a decrease in new weekly Covid cases than registering an increase.

Of the 72 cluster areas overall, 33 had an increase in the number of cases week over week and two saw no change, but 37 actually had a decrease in the total number reported to the during the seven-day period leading up to last Monday, October. 18 – the most recent data available.

This is represented in the total number of cases recorded in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly during this period, which was 3,114 new positive test results – just eight more than had been recorded in the previous seven days.

In the last two daily updates, cases have started to drop again, but due to the five-day lag in numbers, we’ll likely not see this represented on the cluster map until later in the week.

The rate of new cases now stands at an average of 541.1 cases per 100,000 people, against 539.5 cases per 100,000 people last Saturday.

The reason the combined number of cases has risen again slightly in the latest data, despite the reduction in the number of areas, is that a few have seen large increases pushing up the overall total.

Bude & Stratton now has the highest number in Cornwall, with 116 new cases in this weekly period – 76 more than the week before.

St Just & Land’s End was another area with a big increase from the previous week, registering 37 cases compared to just 11 a week earlier.

Falmouth Package:

The map shows positive cases by “middle 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.

Clusters are only displayed when there are three or more new cases reported at any given time.

Anywhere between zero and two cases appear in white to “protect the privacy of individuals and prevent disclosure,” the accompanying information indicates.
