This has risen from 94 clusters in previous figures, meaning that 27 more areas have been found to have a rise in the number of positive Covid cases.

Exeter has seen the most positive cases in the week ending June 26 – the latest figures – with 297 in total, followed by Plymouth with 223, East Devon with 127, and Mid Devon not far behind with 125.

Torbay and Torridge have a total of 119 and 80, respectively, and Teignbridge saw 76 new positive cases. South Hams ended on 51 and West Devon with just nine.

Locations are split into Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOA) which consist of around 7,500 people each. Any MSOA which has at least three new positive Covid-19 tests during the most recent seven-day period that statistics are available for is deemed to have a cluster.

Below are the latest statistics between June 20 and June 26. [Owl has only included details for East Devon and Exeter – go to online article for the full list]

The figure on the left is how many new positive Covid cases there have been and the figure on the right is the case rate per 100,000.

If your area is not on the list it means it has fewer than three positive cases and is therefore not seen as a cluster.
