Cornwall’s COVID-19 map reveals eleven new cluster areas


The most recent COVID-19 cluster map shows there have been eleven new coronavirus clusters in Cornwall.As of yesterday (Friday October 9), there have been three new cases in Wadebridge, two new positive cases of Coronavirus at The Lizard and one new case in the Probus & Roseland, Pool & Illogan Highway and Altarnun & Stoke Climsland areas.

Additionally, eleven new clusters have formed, as at least three confirmed cases of coronavirus have been recorded in St Just & Land’s End, Penzance North, Redruth South, Padstow and St Issey, Par, Roche and Goss Moor, St Agnes and Mount Hawkw, Hayle, Lostwithiel & Penwithick and Penryn – all of whom had no recorded cases yesterday.

The COVID-19 cluster map uses data from Public Health England’s Second Generation Surveillance System (SGSS) to show pockets of Cornwall where coronavirus cases are on the rise. To do this, the map highlights areas of the city that have three or more confirmed cases of the virus and coordinates the color of the areas based on the number of cases.

The map is divided into areas – officially known as Middle Super Output Areas (MSOA) – and each area is colored a certain shade of blue, depending on the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in that area.

The darker the blue in the image, the more positive the cases.

There have been a total of 1,634 cases in Cornwall since the pandemic began yesterday.
