BPH publishes a weekly Covid-19 briefing and breaks down the data by electoral ward.
The data was published yesterday (January 20) and shows the number of reported cases and their infection rate between January 8 and 14.
BPH has rounded the data for each ward to the nearest five in order to protect the identity of individuals.
The latest data shows what the beginning effect has been of the UK third national lockdown – which legally came into force on January 6 – and the results for Slough has been a mixed bag.
Some areas such as Baylis and Stoke, Cippenham Meadows, and Langley St Mary’s have seen the positive effects of the lockdown and their number of cases have decreased – but remain at a high case rate.
Baylis and Stoke saw the biggest decrease in the number of cases with 95 recorded, down by 30 from the previous week.
However, Wexham Lea has overtaken both Langley Kedermister and Britwell and Northborough in having the highest infection rate and number of positive cases in the borough, standing at 155 cases with a weekly rate of 1,502 per 100,000 population.
Colnbrook with Poyle and Haymill and Lynch Hill were there only wards that saw no change in their recorded figures.
