AS LOCKDOWN continues Winchester’s coronavirus case rates continue to rise driven by hotspot areas, while others fare better.

An interactive map on the government website shows just how many people have tested positive for the virus in each area of the county over the seven-day period up to Sunday, November 15.

Based on Public Health England figures, the interactive tool on the government's coronavirus dashboard breaks down positive coronavirus cases by Middle Super Output Areas (MSOAs), areas with an average population of 7,200.

For each area, the map shows the number of cases reported in a weekly period, the seven-day rolling rate of new cases and any changes.

Areas with the highest rates are highlighted in purple and blue, those with the lowest rates are shown in shades of green and yellow.

The number of cases and the infection rate per 100,000 people, which is shown in brackets, in all areas of the Winchester district are as follows:

Oliver’s Batter and Hursley: 17 (207.9)

Denmead and Southwick: 17 (207.9)

Winchester Central and South: 29 (263.7)

Winchester Stanmore: 23 (339.1)

Winchester East: 12 (147.3)

Whiteley, Knowle and Wickham: 16 (136.7)

Winchester West: 18 (180.6)

Colden Common and Twyford: 10 (105)

Alresford: 29 (342.7)

Winchester North and Sparsholt: 23 (237)

Bishop's Waltham and Waltham Chase: 19 (196.4)

Swanmore, Hambledon and West Meon: 14 (133.3)

Springvale and Itchen Abbas: 8 (116.3)

South Wonston, Sutton Scotney and Micheldever: 10 (170.1)

However, given this map is based on data from the previous week, it does not take into account the latest infections, while the infections shown are based on home address.
