Three more coronavirus clusters recorded across Devon

Three new clusters have been recorded in Devon, according to the Goverment’s latest coronavirus data.

The new clusters are in Ashburton and Buckfastleigh, Sidbury, Offwell and Beer, Heathfield and Liverton.

The latest data comes after three more coronavirus clusters were recorded yesterday (November 17).

The areas with 30 cases or more, are Pennsylvania and University (Exeter), Brixham Town, Braunton, Wellswood and Wonford and St Loye’s.

Those with 20 cases or more are, Higher Brixham, Ottery St Mary & West Hill, Shiphay & the Willows, Exmouth Littleham and Exmouth Town and Paignton Central.

The Government’s coronavirus cluster map splits the country into areas of roughly 7,500 people, based on the 2011 census, known as Middle Super Output Areas (MSOAs).

The map highlights areas where three or more coronavirus cases have been reported for a week period, with the numbers coming off of the map a week after being confirmed positive.

Areas not highlighted do not necessarily have no coronavirus cases in them, as the data does not highlight or count areas with less than three cases in order to protect individuals privacy – meaning that if an area has one or two cases, it will display as 0 to 2 cases.

82 cases were reported in Devon for today, November 18 and the areas which these cases occurred will appear in the update for November 23, as there is a five-day delay between cases and being added to the daily coronavirus cluster report.

Areas not listed are classified as “data suppressed” in the Government data, meaning that those areas have between zero and two cases and the data isn’t published in order to protect the privacy of individuals involved.

Today’s update covers the week from November 7 to November 13, meaning positive tests reported on November 6 no longer appear in the statistics.
