Camborne remains the town with the overall highest number of cases, with 210 across its three clusters, although this is actually four cases fewer than the overall amount during the preceding seven days.

Falmouth Packet:

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.

Clusters are only shown when there are three or more new cases reported at any one time.

Anywhere with between zero and two cases shows white in order to “protect the privacy of individuals and prevent disclosure”, the accompanying information states.
