Where the rise in Covid cases are in Cornwall on cluster map

There has been a small rise in the number of areas reporting Covid cases in Cornwall since the weekend. 

On Saturday the Government’s dashboard had just six cluster areas reporting three or more cases, but this has now risen to eight – the same number as was showing a week ago

The eight cluster areas now showing are: St Just & Land’s End (4), Helston (3), Crowan, Wendron & Stithians (3), Camborne West (5), Redruth South (3), St Austell East & Carlyon Bay (3), Dobwalls, Addington & Menheniot (3), Launceston (9). 

It’s as the weekly number of new positive test results in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly rises also, by 16.4 per cent, to 85 in the seven days leading up to March 12.

This is 12 more than was recorded over the same time frame a week earlier. 

The most recent five days are not shown due to incomplete data.

It means Cornwall’s rolling rate is now 14.9 cases per 100,000 people, which is up on the 12.8 cases per 100,000 a week ago and the further reduction to 11.9 cases per 100,000 people showing on Saturday.

Launceston has seen the largest growth of cases in a week, with seven additional positive test results than a week ago, when it had just two cases. 

Also seeing small rises are Crowan, Wendron & Stithians (up one), Camborne West (up three), Redruth South (up one), St Austell East & Carlyon Bay (up one), and Dobwalls, Addington & Menheniot (up one), putting them all back on the map. 

Falmouth Packet:

St Just & Land’s End and Helston remain in exactly the same position as they were a week ago, while Camborne South, Camborne East, St Day & Lanner, Truro South & Central, Bodmin West and Callington & Pensilva have all dropped off from last Wednesday. 

The map only shows clusters when there are at least three confirmed results, with anywhere with between zero and two cases shows white in order to “protect the privacy of individuals and prevent disclosure.”

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.
