THE latest coronavirus hotspots in Basingstoke and Deane have been revealed.

Winklebury & Rooksdown and East Oakley have the highest coronavirus rates in the borough, government figures reveal.

The case rate in the two areas are either just above or hovering around the national average.

An interactive map on the government website shows just how many people have tested positive for the virus in each area of the county over the seven-day period up to Saturday, October 28.

Public Health England breaks down the numbers of coronavirus 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 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. The darker the colour on the image, the more positive test results have been recorded.

The map highlights which areas of the nation have three or more confirmed cases of the virus and colour co-coordinates the areas by how many cases they have.
