The latest coronavirus cluster map for Exeter has identified four cases have arisen out of the Pennsylvania and University district. 

Whilst another four cases have also been confirmed in Clyst, Exton and Lympstone.

Other pockets of Exeter may have COVID-19 but the number of cases in those areas are either below three or nil.

Elsewhere, Launceston has become Cornwall’s fourth new cluster with three cases.

Paignton, Torquay and other areas of the Bay do not appear to have cases of more than two.

Likewise with Newton Abbot and down in South Devon.

Over in Plymouth, there are nine cases in Derriford and Estover, 10 in Mutley and another three in neighbouring Peverell.

The map divides the country into small patches of around 7,200 average population and are called Middle Super Output Areas (MSOA).

A cluster is recorded when three or more cases have been confirmed in the space of seven days.

The latest information concerns the spread of COVID from September 10 to September 16.

Plymouth’s Mutley and Peverell areas have had three or more COVID-19 cases
