Just three areas of Cornwall are showing new cases of Covid-19 on today's map - and they're all different to a week ago.

It's as Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly sees a further 23.8% drop in new cases over the course of a week, with 48 recorded in the seven days leading up to April 30 - the most recent five days not showing due to incomplete date.

This is 15 fewer cases than were recorded over the previous week.


The rolling rate of cases has also decreased, to average 8.4 cases per 100,000 people - down from 11.2 cases per 100,000 people a week ago.

Now showing as case clusters on the government's dashboard map are: Camborne East (4 cases, up two), Penryn (3, up one), St Agnes & Mount Hawke (3, up one).

Falmouth Packet:

They are all different to the clusters showing last Wednesday, which were: St Just & Land's End, West Penwith & St Buryan, Helston, The Lizard, Redruth South.

With only small fluctuations it means that areas can drop off and reappear back on the map frequently.

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."

Falmouth Packet:

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.
