The 22 areas in Berkshire with no coronavirus cases

THERE are 22 areas in Berkshire which have reported no coronavirus clusters according to the latest statistics – as Covid-19 cases decrease across the county.

Public Health England breaks down the numbers of Covid-19 cases into neighbourhoods called ‘Middle Super Output Areas’ (MSOAs), which are smaller than council wards and based on population rather than geographical area.

The interactive map, which can be found online, allows users to type in their postcode and see how many cases were reported in their area and if it has increased or decreased from the week before.

These areas on the map are coloured white and described as “suppressed”, meaning MSOA level rates are suppressed and there have been zero to two cases in a seven-day period. This also protects the privacy of individuals and prevents disclosure.

Government and Public Health England define a coronavirus cluster as an area where there are more than two Covid-19 cases in a population size of 7,500 at any one time.
