Lancashire neighbourhoods with virus hot spots in the last week

Written by on July 23, 2020

Fresh data showing exactly where there are new cases of coronavirus in Lancashire has been released.

The data, available through a government-made map, allows Lancashire residents to check Covid-19 data for any area of the country via entering a postcode.

Every area of the county has been split into Middle Layer Super Output Areas, which are used to report data on small areas.

Yesterday (July 22), LancsLive reported on data reported by last Wednesday (July 15) with specimen dates between July 6 and July 12.

This afternoon, fresh data has been released for positive cases of coronavirus from July 13 to July 19 that were reported up until yesterday.

The data shows that Blackburn – which is currently at risk of fresh local lockdown measures – has fared the worst.

This is expected with testing ramped up across the Blackburn with Darwen borough as public health bosses try and curb a ‘rising tide’ of new Covid-19 cases.

The worst hit suburb was Audley, with 30 new cases across the seven days. Wensley Fold recorded 19 new cases and Bastwell a further 12.

For comparison to Leicester, which is currently under a state of local lockdown, 26 new cases were recorded in the city’s Spinney Hill Road suburb.

Notably, Accrington West also recorded 15 new cases of coronavirus.

Nelson West, in the borough of Pendle, recorded 20 new cases in the week from July 6 to July 12. This was halved in the most recent week of data with 10 positive cases recorded.

Residents in Pendle are still being urged to visit mobile testing units in Pendle this week in a bid to curb coronavirus, with testing extended until the end of the month.

Data is currently only available on a weekly basis, with hopes to make it daily in the near future.

A total of 21 areas of Lancashire that have recorded more than two cases of coronavirus from July 13 to July 19, with cases between zero and two not shown on the map.
