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. This means a case reported on October 20 would no longer display on today’s map, which is for October 21 to October 27.
Areas not highlighted do not necessarily have no coronavirus cases in them, as the map does not highlight or count areas with less than three cases – meaning that if an area has one or two cases, it will display as 0 to 2 cases.
There has also been a reduction in the number of coronavirus cases in 35 areas of Devon.
These areas are Pennsylvania and University (Exeter), St James’ Park and Hoopern, Shiphay and the Willows, Cranbook, Broadclyst and Stoke Canon, Torquay Central, Central Exeter, Upton and Hele, Wonford and St Loyes, Woolwell and Lee Mill, Alphington and Marsh Barton, Churston and Galmpton, Countess Wear and Topsham, Pinhoe and Whipton North, Watcombe, Barnstaple South, Teignmouth North, Kingsbridge, St Marychurch and Maidencombe, Willand, Sampford Peverell and Halberton, Ilfracombe West, Newton Abbot, Broadlands and Wolborough, Bere Alston, Buckland Monachorum and Yelverton, Ilfracombe East, Ipplepen and Broadhempston, Newton Abbot Highweek, Okehampton, Preston and Shorton, St Leonard’s, St Thomas East, Bow, Lapford and Yeoford, Chillington, Torcross and Stoke Fleming, Exmouth Brixington and Woolacombe, Georgeham and Croyde.
