Find out how many active Covid cases are in your neighbourhood with this user-friendly map.
Despite the incredible news that over 13 million people have now been vaccinated in the UK, Covid is still very much on the loose. I’m sure at some point we’ve all wondered how many people in our neighbourhood have the dreaded virus and this very handy interactive map will tell us exactly that. The map uses government data to monitor the number of covid infections all over the UK, breaking down the information by postcode. [Featured image: gov.uk]
It is updated every week and uses a very simple colour coordination system to highlight the number of active covid cases per neighbourhood. There are eight colours in total, ranging from white (less than three cases) to black (over 800 cases), with yellow, green, blue and burgundy shades in between. Essentially, the darker the colour, the more people have Covid in the area.
Some areas of Bristol are currently a mixture of dark blue and bright blue, which indicates higher than average rates across our region, however many are now turning to dark green. Clifton Village, Redland & St Andrews, Pill & Easton, Cotham, Henleaze, Westbury Village, Crew’s Hole, Longwell Green & Oldland Common, Portishead South, Portishead Central, Portishead Redcliffe, Nailsea East, Pensford, Clutton & Temple Cloud, Winterbourne, Alveston, Olveston & Oldbury and some areas around Bath, on the other hand, rank extremely well on the scale – classing them as having suppressed the virus, recording less than three cases in the area. Areas of concern, which are above the national average, currently include Bishopsworth, Hartcliffe, Stockwood, Kingswood South, and Downend South, with between 200-399 cases.
For a more in-depth analysis of each neighbourhood, you can simply type in your postcode or click on the different areas on the map. In doing so, you will find out how many current cases there are if that number has increased or decreased from the previous week, the rolling rate and how the area compares to the rest of England.
