The mapped areas of East Yorkshire where coronavirus cases are on the decline


It’s often seen as the harbinger of disaster, but a map from Public Health England also shows areas where coronavirus cases are on the decline or even under control. While cases continue to increase nationwide, there are local areas where cases are decreasing, as shown on the interactive map for the week of October 12-19.

The country is dotted with shades of dark blue and brown, but there are areas of green and even white, which means the virus is in fact suppressed.

One area of ​​East Yorkshire where the virus appears to be suppressed is part of Holderness, which includes Bilton, Sproatley and Aldrough.

The white area means there have been less than three cases recorded in the past seven days.

Beverley South is pale green and appeared five fewer cases last week compared to the previous week with eight cases.

Burstwick and Thorngumbald are a heartwarming shade of green and cases have fallen by three last week with six cases on record.

There is better news for Pocklington too. It is the hardest-hit area in East Yorkshire and although it remains a worrying shade of brown and still recorded 51 cases last week, it is down ten from the week former.

Public Health England interactive map showing local coronavirus cases

In Hull, there is good news for the Avenues which saw cases drop from seven to four just last week.

Pickering and Anlaby Park also saw seven fewer cases, 16 of which were recorded last week.

Bricknell West also saw one fewer case last week with five on record.

But there is no room for complacency and the situation is constantly changing.

The interactive map shows Hornsea is now a hotspot with 37 cases this week, an increase of 17 from the previous week.

Goole West is even worse with a huge increase of 29 cases last week and now has 44 on record.

Both areas have turned brown with a weekly turnover rate greater than 400 per 100,000 inhabitants and are calculated by dividing the number of seven days by the population of the area and multiplying by 100,000 inhabitants.

While the map identifies local hot spots, it doesn’t tell you why there might be an increase and whether or not there has been an outbreak.
