Big spike in cases in area of Plymouth in latest cluster data

The latest Government statistics reporting clusters of Covid-19 show a massive spike in cases in the Mannamead and Hartley areas of Plymouth with 42 cases, an increase of 13.

No new clusters of coronavirus infections have been reported in the city in the latest daily update, produced by UK Government and Public Health England.

Thirteen areas of Plymouth have seen an increase in cluster numbers while 14 areas have seen a decrease with five staying the same.

Today’s update covers the week from November 6 to November 12, meaning positive tests that were reported on November 5 no longer appear on the map.

Areas not listed are classified as “data suppressed” in the Government data, meaning that those areas have between zero and two cases and the data isn’t published in order to protect the privacy of individuals involved.

What is a coronavirus cluster?

The Government’s coronavirus cluster map splits the country into areas of roughly 7,500 people, based on the 2011 census, known as Middle Super Output Areas (MSOAs).

The map highlights areas where three or more coronavirus cases have been reported for a week period, with the numbers coming off of the map a week after being confirmed positive.

Areas not highlighted do not necessarily have no coronavirus cases in them, as the data does not highlight or count areas with less than three cases in order to protect individuals privacy – meaning that if an area has one or two cases, it will display as 0 to 2 cases.
