The Vale of Glamorgan Council has released their latest update on Covid-19, this time including a cluster map showing the different rates of infection per area in the county.
Based on the latest 7-day figures from Public Health Wales up to 30th October, figures for the Vale are as follows:
The Council's new cluster map shows the current rate of infection per 100,000, per area. The maps present Covid-19 in the same way that the Council organise their primary and community care services.
The map shows Penarth to be the current hot spot of the virus here in the Vale, with cases per 100,000 of the population shared relatively evenly between the rest of the county.
The Council also commented on the rising numbers of infection in the Vale of Glamorgan and the fact that it is too early to expect to see any results from the current Wales-wide Firebreak lockdown. In their statement the Council explained:
"Rates in the Vale of Glamorgan have started to increase again over the past week after a period of relative stability. They are now 130.3 per 100k over 7 days, representing around 25 new cases per day. The rate of tests taken that are positive has risen to 13.2%
"Both the rate per 100k and test positivity put the Vale above the ‘red’ threshold set by Welsh Government.
"It is too early to see the impact of the Firebreak Lockdown on the rate in the Vale and the rest of Wales.
"To help stop the spread of COVID-19 in the Vale we must all work together and observe the current Firebreak restrictions that are in place. Most importantly, we must all continue to wash our hands regularly, keep our distance from others, and remember to wear a mask when indoors in public places."
