AN INTERACTIVE map has revealed the places in Basingstoke and Deane that has the highest number of Covid cases.

In the seven days to February 21, Kings Furlong saw the highest number of new cases, at 11 - up eight from the previous week.

Bramley, Sherfield & the Sherbornes also saw 11 new cases in the same period - up by five on the week before.

The third highest rate was in South Ham, which saw eight new cases - however this was five cases fewer than the previous week.

The 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.

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.

A total of 143 new cases were confirmed in the borough in the seven days to February 19, however this dropped to 132 new cases in the week to February 26.

The means that Basingstoke and Deane currently has a rolling rate of 70.2 per 100,000 population, much lower than the UK average of 114.

But in Bramley, Sherfield & the Sherbornes, as well as Kings Furlong and South Ham, the rates are much higher.

Bramley, Sherfield & the Sherbornes has a rolling rate of 116.5 and Kings Furlong 129.8 - both above the UK average - and South Ham 102.6.

On the other end of the scale, areas including Chineham, Kempshott, Oakley and Wooton St Lawrence are considered “suppressed” by the map, meaning they recorded fewer than three cases in the seven day period.

Meanwhile Houndmills & Oakridge; Basingstoke Central, Black Dam & Eastrop; and Hatch Warren all recorded just three new cases each - a reduction in numbers for all three areas on the previous week.
