New cases of coronavirus in Cornwall have fallen by almost a third again, leaving just three areas still recording three or more cases.

Across the seven days leading up to April 9 there were 45 new cases recorded - a fall of 20 on last Wednesday's total and reduction of 30.8% week on week.

The most recent five days are not shown due to incomplete data.

As a result, the rolling rate of cases has seen a significant fall, to just 7.9 cases per 100,000 - not far off half the 14.0 cases average from a week ago.


Saturday's weekend update also saw cases fall by a third in that week.

It leaves just three parts of Cornwall still recording three or more new positive test results - all new from a week ago.

These are: West Penwith & St Buryan (4, up two), Crowan, Wendron & Stithians (3, up one), and Wadebridge (3, up one).

Falmouth Packet:

All ten clusters on last Wednesday's map have dropped off again: Hayle, Marazion, St Erth & Gwinear Gwithian, Ponsanooth, Mabe Burnthouse & Constantine, Camborne South, Camborne East, Newquay East, St Columb Major & St Mawgan, Liskeard, Launceston, Poundstock & Kilkhampton.

The map only shows clusters when there are at least three confirmed results, with anywhere between zero and two cases showing white in order to "protect the privacy of individuals and prevent disclosure."

In all instances over the past week it is only small fluctuations that have caused areas to reappear back on the map.

The map shows positive cases by 'Middle Super Output Area' - the name the government gives to the break-up of larger towns and groups of neighbouring towns and villages, with groupings covering a greater area than others.

The minimum population in each area is 5,000 and the average is 7,200.
