Last week BristolLive was able to reveal up to three quarters of all the people in Bristol who have tested positive for coronavirus in recent days have been students at the University of Bristol.

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.
