neighborhoods with highest case rates as city remains at level 3 – fr


Glasgow has been in the throes of a Covid-19 outbreak for several weeks, with the number of cases and infection rates rising in the city.
High rates are particularly prevalent in south Glasgow, which has been hit hardest by the breakout.

The city has remained under Tier 3 lockdown restrictions in an effort to reduce the infection rate, while the rest of Scotland has moved to either Tier 2 or Tier 1 measures.

However, yesterday Nicola Sturgeon said there were “signs of cautious optimism” in Glasgow following a major spike in coronavirus cases in the city.

She confirmed that data from the past two days suggests the number of cases is leveling off, and added that it was “important to recognize that public health measures will take time” and that “we are not losing heart.”

According to figures released by Public Health Scotland, Glasgow’s current seven-day covid positivity rate per 100,000 is 138.7.

The latest statistics also revealed the number of cases and the rate of infection in each neighborhood on the Glasgow City Council boundary.

This confirms that the south side of the city remains by far the most affected area, with Kingston West and Dumbreck, Pollokshields East and Ibrox East and Cessnock recording the highest infection rates in the city.
