Coronavirus cases in Cambridgeshire: Two areas in and around Cambridge record small clusters

Two areas in and around Cambridge have recorded small clusters of coronavirus cases, latest data shows.

Central and West Cambridge had six laboratory-confirmed cases in the seven days to August 31, according to data from Public Health England.

Meanwhile, in South Cambridgeshire, Fulbourn and Teversham had five cases in the seven days to August 31.

The encouraging news is that these two areas were the only ones in Cambridgeshire - excluding Peterborough - to record more than two cases in the latest data.

This data from Public Health England is broken down into geographic territories known as middle super output areas, which have similar populations typically of about 7,000-8,000.

At that local level, where there are fewer than three cases, the data is suppressed and recorded as 0-2.

However, data is also available for local authority areas. That shows that across the whole of Cambridge, there were 16 laboratory-confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the 10 days to September 4.

Meanwhile, South Cambridgeshire has had eight, East Cambridgeshire has had three and Huntingdonshire has had six.

Fenland has had just three in the period, but Peterborough continues to report significant numbers of cases, with 38 in 10 days - taking the total recorded there since the start of the pandemic to 1,637.

Looking more closely at the Peterborough outbreaks, four areas had clusters in the seven days to August 31: Central Park had 14, while Millfield and Bourges Boulevard had four, as did North Bretton and Westwood, while Stanground had three.

In East Cambridgeshire, no area had more than two cases in the two weeks to the end of August.

Huntingdonshire had three weeks in August with no areas reporting more than two cases.

And Fenland has had no areas reporting more than two cases since July 20-26.
