Having had a day off from the interactive map, I thought I might see a steep rise – well, I have and I haven’t.
In the 7 days to 28th December, Cornwall did see a steep rise. It had 1008 cases, up by 520 or 106.6%. Looking more closely, hotspots seem to be around Newquay, Truro and the Roseland Peninsula.
Devon had around a 10% drop in cases to 1035, down by 120.
Torridge had 66 cases, a drop of 9 (12%).
Bude had 8 cases, a drop of 1.
Poundstock and Kilkhampton had 4 cases, a drop of 3.
Holsworthy, Bradworthy and Welcombe had 8 cases, a drop of 7.
Hartland coast had 6 cases, a drop of 2.
Crackington and Tintagel, low numbers, data suppressed
Camelford and Tresmeer down to 3 cases.
There has also now been a drop around Dartmoor area.
So, Cornwall is rising, but not every part of it – yet.
However, bear in mind that we are dealing with historic numbers here.
