Coronavirus case statistics for every community in Wales released for the first time

New data released by the Welsh government and Public Health Wales has revealed for the first time the number of Covid-19 cases in every community in Wales.Public Health Wales is now publishing the number of coronavirus cases over the past week in all parts of Wales.

It provides the figures for areas with an average population of 7,000 – called super-average yield areas. In practice, this means that there are statistics for regions like Canton in Cardiff, Morriston in Swansea and Porth in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Data shows that the four areas of Wales with the highest infection rate last week are all in Cardiff, in areas with a large student population.

This interactive map shows the number of coronavirus cases per 100,000 inhabitants for each area of ​​the latter. If you can’t use this map, there is also a graphic you can search for your community at the bottom of this article.

It’s really important to keep in mind that this data is very volatile because it covers such small areas. When an area has a very small population, even a positive case can dramatically increase the number of cases per 100,000 population. You should therefore avoid drawing too many conclusions directly from the information.

For example, in Cardiff, Adamsdown and Pentwyn have almost exactly the same number of cases per 100,000 people over the past week (108 and 109 respectively). But Adamsdown has 13 real cases and Pentwyn has eight. This is because Adamsdown has more people living there. This means that a new case in Pentwyn will increase the rate per 100,000 people over one new case in Adamsdown.
