Cornwall coronavirus case clusters map shows drop in cases

The number of coronavirus clusters in Cornwall rose slightly earlier this week – although the amount of actual cases fell.

The latest government map of positive coronavirus cases in England now shows 16 clusters in Cornwall – up from nine a week ago, but only one more than the 15 showing on Monday this week.

It is important to remember, however, that the map ‘live’ on the website today actually shows cases recorded between September 22 and 28, with any registered from Tuesday onwards this week not yet showing.

Between those dates there were 126 active cases – which is a slight drop on the 134 cases that were showing on Monday.


The map shows positive cases by ‘Middle Super Output Area’ – the name the government gives to the break-up of larger towns and groups of neighbouring towns and villages, with groupings covering a greater area than others.

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

Some areas have dropped off the map, as locations with between zero and two cases are not registered.

The map is no longer showing Crowan, Wendron & Stithians, Newquay West, Bodmin East as having cases.

However, Penzance North, St Agnes & Mount Hawke, Newquay East and St Columb Minor & Porth have been added in their place.

The breakdown of cases between those dates was:
