Today’s look at the interactive map shows a little improvement.
While Bude is still showing 33 cases in the 7 days to 17th November, there was only a rise of 2 new cases (6.5%) but Bude is still a Covid cluster,so we need to continue to be careful.
The rolling rate remains at 309.4, as we are above average but from a low numerical base. (Seven–day rolling rates are expressed per 100,000 population and are calculated by dividing the seven day count by the area population and multiplying by 100,000. The number of people with at least one positive COVID-19 test result (either lab-reported or lateral flow device) in the rolling seven day period ending on the dates shown are included. Data are presented as either counts or rates per 100,000 population – the latter as with Bude’s 309.4.)
On the map, white areas are suppressed rates. This means rates are suppressed where there have been fewer than 3 cases in a seven-day period, and is to protect the privacy of individuals and prevent disclosure.
Currently, Bude is still in the dark blue MSOA (middle layer super output) rate which leaves our numbers, while low, with an above average case rate compared to the England average.
- Crackington & Tintagel remain low (white)
- Poundstock and Kilkhampton is still at 12 (rolling rate of 158.8)
- Holsworthy, Bradworthy and Welcombe is on 11 (rolling rate of 108.6)
- Hartland Coast has 6 cases, a rise (rolling rate 92.2)
- Launceston has seen a drop to 3 cases (rolling rate of 27.5)
- Camelford and Tresmeer are low (white)
So, we still need to be careful and follow the guidance.
