Clevedon North and Walton currently has the region’s lowest infection rate (106.9), with only six covid cases confirmed in the seven days to September 1.

Looking at Bristol as a whole, a total of 1,790 covid cases were recorded that week, taking the city’s infection rate to 384.2 per 100,000.

While that is a decrease of 10 per cent in the space of a week, Bristol’s infection rate remains above the England average (309.4).

Where is the data coming from?

You can see the latest national data on the government’s website.

The map displays weekly data, which is updated every day.

The data can be viewed by local authority but also by smaller sections called ‘Middle Super Output Areas’.

The map highlights which areas of the nation have three or more confirmed cases of the virus and colour co-coordinates the areas by how many cases they have.
