Covid-19: The seven areas in Slough with high rates

AS the town continues to face restrictions of the third national lockdown, we have rounded up the latest case numbers to show the worst affected areas in Slough.

A spread of different colours a few months ago, the Government’s Covid-19 map showed almost the whole of Slough as a sea of purple and dark purple in recent weeks, indicating that the rolling rate for each postcode was above 400 or 800 respectively.

But now some locations are once again showing as light blue, indicating a lower rate of 200 or less.

However, seven places remain with Covid rates of more than 200.

The map’s latest figures show the seven-day rolling rate up to February 12.

Despite these areas having a rate of more than 200, cases across the town are dropping, and infection rates in all areas have seen a decrease.

Seven–day rates are expressed per 100,000 population and are calculated by dividing the seven day count by the area population and multiplying by 100,000.
