Latest Covid cases in Cornwall cluster map: 45% rise in week

A further rise in Covid cases has been registered on the latest government cluster map – with more than 50 extra added in three days and a 45 per cent rise week-on-week.

However, these figures represent new cases by specimen date in the seven days leading up to Monday this week, November 9.

More recent dates are left off due to incomplete data not reflecting the true number of cases.

And the figures in the coming days are likely to rise even further, following the news earlier today that there had been an extra 135 positive test results recorded in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly since yesterday.

Today’s government cluster map, updated at 4pm today (Saturday) shows a total of 431 cases – a 45 per rise in a week, compared to the 297 recorded on last Saturday’s map.

However, the number of cluster areas affected has dropped by two, to 49 now showing cases, down from 51 on Wednesday.

Clusters are only shown when there are at least three confirmed results, with anywhere having between zero and two cases showing white in order to “protect the privacy of individuals and prevent disclosure.”

The overall total marks a rolling rate of 75.4 cases per 100,000 people, which is far below the UK average.

One of the biggest spikes has been in the at the top of Cornwall, in Bude & Stratton, where cases from jumped from 17 on Wednesday to 30 three days later.

This marks a seven-day rolling rate of 281.2 cases per 100,000 people – which is above the national average.

There has been a further small rise in Falmouth, from 17 to 19 cases across the town, which is separated into three different areas – Falmouth East, North and West & South.

And there has been additional growth in the Ponsanooth, Mabe Burnthouse & Constantine area also, with five new cases since Wednesday bringing it to 17.

The Lizard Peninsula has three more cases and Helston has doubled from five to ten in three days.

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.
