Covid cases are quickly rising in many neighbourhoods across Bristol, the latest government data shows.

Several places in the city have seen cases rising by more than 300 per cent in a week.

Knowle Park has gone from having its data suppressed after fewer than three covid cases were recorded to 23 (1,050 per cent rise).

The news comes after Bristol’s director of public health has said the number of covid cases confirmed in Bristol is expected to rise above what we have seen in previous waves.

Christina Gray said that Bristol’s infection rate reached about 500 per 100,000 at the second peak but that, by the end of this week, the city will be above 400 per 100,000.

She said national modelling, SAGE and the Government are saying that covid cases across the country will reach levels we have not seen before, and that it appears this will be the case in Bristol as well.

Where is the data coming from?

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

The map displays weekly data, which are updated everyday.

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.
