The coronavirus is still affecting communities in South Cambridgeshire, latest data from Public Health England (PHE) shows.

Cambourne had five laboratory-confirmed cases in the week of July 13-19, it shows.

And Linton and Balsham had three cases in the same week.

Histon, Impington and Orchard Park recorded three confirmed cases the previous week.

This was the first time since the end of May that any area of South Cambridgeshire had recorded more than two cases.

PHE records weekly data of cases by areas of 5,000-15,000 people each, and typically around 8,000, known as middle super output areas. But it suppresses the data if fewer than three cases are confirmed in one of these areas.

The Cambridge Independent has compiled the data into interactive graphics and tables, which show when cases rose above two for each area of Cambridgeshire for every week since the coronavirus outbreak began - see our story on cases across Cambridgeshire to view all the details.

Dr Liz Robin, director of public health for Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council, said: “Although cases of coronavirus are decreasing in Cambridgeshire as they are nationally, we need people to remain alert and to understand that coronavirus is still circulating in our communities.”
