Coronavirus in Scotland: Glasgow neighborhoods with highest and lowest covid infections


More than 2,000 people in the Glasgow area have tested positive for the coronavirus in the past seven days.
Between December 31 and January 6, 2,260 additional new cases of the virus were confirmed.

The region is currently the sixth most infected region in the country, with North Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire having recorded the most cases in the past week.

Thanks to statistics released by the Scottish Government, we can see which neighborhoods in Glasgow have been most affected and which neighborhood has seen the highest percentage of its population affected.

In the first week of a nationwide lockdown, Parkhead West and Barrowfield recorded the highest number of cases with 40 against a population of 7,465.

Craigend and Ruchazie recorded 39 new cases among its population of 5,692.

However, Wyndford only reported seven cases this week, out of a population of 4,306 people.

In the south of the city, Nitshill (34), Darnley North (26), Darnley West (35), Darnley East (28) and Carnwadric West (31) were the most affected.

Carmyle and Mount Vernon South have recorded 14 cases among its population of just 2,632.

The western end of the city was the least affected last week, with Finnieston and Kelvinhaugh, Kelvindale and Kelvingrove and the university recording just 21 cases collectively.
