Two new areas of Covid cases are showing on Cornwall's cluster map following a completely clear picture at the weekend.

It's after cases rose by 57.1% week-on-week, with 33 recorded in the seven days leading up to June 4.

This was compared to 21 across the previous week - an increase of 12.

Figures from the most recent five days are not shown due to incomplete data.

The rolling rate is now averaging 5.8 cases per 100,000 people, compared to 3.5 cases per 100,000 a week ago.

Two clusters have appeared on the government's dashboard map, showing new clusters in St Columb Major & St Mawgan (5 cases, up three on last week) and Bodmin East (3 cases, up one on last week).

Falmouth Packet:

Small changes are enough to put areas back on the map of clusters.

Clusters are only shown on the government's dashboard map when there are three or more new cases reported at any one time.

Anywhere with between zero and two cases shows white in order to "protect the privacy of individuals and prevent disclosure", the accompanying information states.

It means that while there may have been the odd case reported in other areas, it would not be enough to make them show up on the map.

Falmouth Packet:

It's after a clear Saturday, when no clusters were showing.

Last Wednesday saw one cluster area on the map, Torpoint, but this is no longer reporting sufficient cases to appear.

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.
