The 31 areas of Wales where Covid is now so common, one in 100 people have it – .


31 regions of Wales now have Covid infection rates of over 1,000 cases per 100,000 people.
The latest Covid data released by Public Health Wales (PHW) shows that the number of places with more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 has risen from those eight areas to 31 in just one week.

This data was first released on Friday, September 24. They provide figures for areas with an average population of 7,000, known as Super Average Exit Areas (MSOA).

In practice, this means that there are statistics for regions like Canton in Cardiff, Morriston in Swansea and Porth in Rhondda.

Data shows that there are 31 places in Wales with over 1,000 cases per 100,000 population and 43 where the figure exceeds 900.

On the other end of the spectrum, WalesOnline has reported every week all areas of Wales that have fewer than three cases of Covid. For more than six weeks now, each part of Wales has had more than two cases of the coronavirus, reflecting the current extent of the virus.

This map shows the number of coronavirus cases per 100,000 people for each area over the past seven days. If you can’t use this map, there’s also a table you can use to find your community at the bottom of this article:

It is important to keep in mind that this data is very volatile as it covers smaller areas. When an area has a very small population, even a positive case can dramatically increase the number of cases per 100,000. So you need to be careful not to draw too many conclusions directly from the information.
