A neighbourhood in the Bristol area has seen its coronavirus case rate double in the past week – meaning it now has one of the worst rates in the country.

According to the latest government data, the infection rate at Kingswood North East has shot up from 513.7 to 1,053.2 per 100,000 in the space of a week.

The South Gloucestershire neighbourhood – which recorded 82 covid cases in the seven days to January 14, the latest data available – is now recording rates similar to those in the worst-hit areas across England.

Knowsley in the Liverpool area is one of the few areas in the country to be recording higher rates (1,179.2) with the vast majority of areas in and around London are now recording lower rates – such as Slough (1,044.5) or Barking and Dagenham (1,032.9).

A total of 2,071 coronavirus infections were recorded in Bristol in the seven days to January 14 and the city’s rate (446.9) has actually gone down by nine per cent in the past seven days after a steep rise over the past month – while getting closer to England’s current rate (506.5).

Where is the data coming from?

You can see the latest national data on the government’s website.

The map displays weekly data, which are updated everyday.

The data can be viewed by local authority but also by smaller sections called ‘Middle Super Output Areas’.

The map highlights which areas of the nation have three or more confirmed cases of the virus and colour co-coordinates the areas by how many cases they have.
