Latest Covid coronavirus cases cluster map for Cornwall

The number of cluster areas with cases of coronavirus in Cornwall has dropped by more than a quarter in a week.

The latest map has been published on the government website, recording cases in the seven days leading up to Monday this week, November 23.

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

It shows that during that time there there were 290 positive cases recorded – 193 fewer than a week ago and 67 less than in Wednesday’s midweek update.

The cases are now spread across 39 ‘cluster’ areas, which is 15 fewer than a week ago and a drop of 27.7 per cent.

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 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 current clusters in Cornwall

While both the case numbers and cluster areas are falling, there are still a couple of hotspots that have seen rises.

Illogan & Portreath has seen a jump of four cases showing a week ago to 13 on today’s map. This represents a seven-day rolling average of 182.6 cases per 100,000 people, which is above national average.

Also showing above-average figures is Bodmin, which now has 33 cases across its two cluster areas, compared to 14 this time last week. However, it is a fall of two on Wednesday’s figures.

Many of these are likely to come from an outbreak at the Kepak factory in Bodmin, where 106 staff members out of 271 tested have proved positive for Covid-19 and are now self-isolating.
