Cornwall's Covid map has gone green again as the rolling rate of cases rises back up above ten.

The map turned yellow a week ago, indicating that the average rate of cases was between zero and nine – the lowest rate.

However, on Wednesday it was back to green again as the rolling rate rose to 10.8 cases per 100,000 people, although this is still extremely low compared to the almost 250 cases per 100,000 people that Cornwall was seeing back in January.

Last Wednesday though the rate was 7.9 cases per 100,000 - dropping to 6.8 cases last Thursday.


There were 62 cases recorded in the seven days to April 16, the last Friday of the school Easter holidays.

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

This is 17 more than reported a week ago - a rise of 37.8 per cent.

There are now four times as many cluster areas as at the weekend. Saturday saw a new low this year with only two clusters remaining on the Government map, and only three a week ago.

However, on Wednesday's map the number has climbed back up to eight cluster areas. These are: West Penwith & St Buryan (7, up three), Hayle (4, up two), Penryn (3, up one), Illogan & Portreath (4, up two), St Breward, Tredethy & Lanivet (3, up one), Altarnun & Stoke Climsland (3, up one), Dobwalls, Addington & Menheniot (3, up one), Launceston (4, up two).

Dropping off the map are Crowan, Wendron & Stithians, and Wadebridge.

Since Saturday, Crowan, Wendron & Stithians has also dropped off the map again already, while St Breward, Tredethy & Lanivet remains.

West Penwith & St Buryan remains on the map for the second week running, after it was put back on the map last Wednesday with a rise of two cases, taking it to four overall. Now, with a further three cases, is has a well above average rate of cases compared to the rest of the country.

Falmouth Packet:

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 the majority of 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.
