Where is rise in Covid cases in Cornwall on cluster map?

Only ten areas of Cornwall remain without visible coronavirus cases following a surge in positive test results in the past week of more than a third.

The latest government map shows 63 cluster areas, some of which are showing up to a 383.3 per cent rise in cases during the seven days leading up to December 25.

The most recent five days are left off due to incomplete data not reflecting the true number of cases.

They include the Lizard Peninsula – identified as ‘The Lizard’ on the map, but also including areas such as Mullion, St Keverne and the Meneage villages – which is now showing 24 cases, which is 17 more than a week earlier at a rate rise of 242.9 per cent.

Other areas include St Agnes & Mount Hawke, up to 21 cases (a 61.5 per cent rise) and Probus & Roseland up to 18 cases (a 200 per cent rise), although it is

St Columb Minor & Porth that has seen the biggest increase, to 29 cases – up 23 in a week at a rate rise of 383.3 per cent.

Although Callington & Pensilva still has 20 cases, this is actually 19 fewer than a week ago.

Just ten areas of Cornwall are not showing as Covid clusters today: West Penwith & St Buryan, Penzance South & Newlyn, Camborne West, Bodmin West, Bodmin East, Lanreath, Pelynt & Polruan, Looe & Polperro, Saltash Latchbrook & St Stephens, Torpoint and Camelford & Tresmeer.

This could mean they have no cases at all, or they are too few to register, with the map only showing clusters when there are at least three confirmed results. Anywhere with between zero and two cases shows white in order to “protect the privacy of individuals and prevent disclosure.”

Overall Cornwall and Isles of Scilly has had 554 cases in the week leading up to December 25, which is a 37.5 per cent rise on the previous week, when there were 402 weekly cases, and represents a rolling rate of 96.9 cases per 100,000 people.

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