COVID-19: 12 Wales’ areas report highest rates of infection

Date:

In Wales, despite the number of COVID-19 infections are falling drastically throughout the Country, there are still some areas where infections are spreading rapidly. 

There’s one area that still has a COVID infection rate of over 500 cases for every 100,000 people in the last week.

As per the data published on Friday, February 4, it reveals the figures for areas with an average of 7,000 individuals, called Middle Super Output Areas (MSOA). 

Moreover, there are figures for areas like Morriston in Swansea, Canton in Cardiff, and Porth in Rhondda.

According to the data, there are around 12 places in Wales with more than 300 cases per 100,000 of the population, two over 400 and one over 500.

At present, the areas with the most number of COVID-19 cases in Wales are as follows for the past rolling seven days up to February 27:

  • Carmarthen South & Llangynnwr, Carmarthenshire – 511.7
  • Rheidol, Ystwyth & Caron, Ceredigion – 424.4
  • Glynneath, Neath Port Talbot – 360.9
  • Pontcanna, Cardiff – 360.1
  • Prestatyn South, Denbighshire – 346
  • Machynlleth & Banwy, Powys – 333.8
  • Heath, Cardiff – 331.4
  • Rhosllanerchrugog & Johnstown South, Wrexham – 327.2
  • Fairwater South, Cardiff – 326.2
  • Cowbridge, The Vale of Glamorgan – 326
  • Llandough & Cogan, The Vale of Glamorgan – 315.2
  • South Riverside, Cardiff – 309.5

However, the data is very volatile because it covers small areas of the Country. When an area has a very small population, even one positive case can significantly push up the cases per 100,000.
