Cornwall coronavirus map of positive Covid-19 case clusters

The latest government map of positive coronavirus cases in England shows there were nine clusters in Cornwall last week.

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.

The most recent figures show data from September 14 to September 20 and indicate that there were 55 cases recorded in nine cluster areas.

There may have been additional positive test results in other areas that do not register on the map, as locations with only one or two cases recorded show up white in the same way as locations with zero cases.

The breakdown of the clusters is:

Crowan, Wendron & Stithians

Number of cases: 3

Pool & Illogan Highway

Number of cases: 17

Camborne East

Number of cases: 10
