Coronavirus cases have risen sharply in Basingstoke since the start of October.

The Gazette has created a graph showing where infections have been rising in the borough. 

It comes as today a further 1,228 new cases of coronavirus were recorded in Hampshire.

Public Health England figures show that 38,680 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 by 9am on Friday (January 8) in Hampshire, up from 37,452 the same time on Thursday.

The rate of infection in Hampshire now stands at 2,798 cases per 100,000 people, still below lower than the England average of 4,547.

However, the picture varies wildly depending on where you are based. 

In Basingstoke, nearly all wards now have a higher rate than England's average.

In Kings Furlong, 43 new cases have been recorded in the last seven days to January - up 18 from the week before. 

While Popley has recorded 89 new infections, up 42 new cases.
