New coronavirus cases broken down by local area


The latest figures have been released showing which local areas are currently the worst affected by Covid-19 and how these figures compare to the previous week.

The map, produced by Public Health England, has been updated to show where the new coronavirus cases have been recorded during the 7 day period ending November 11th.

The map breaks down areas by 'middle super output areas' and highlights that Mobberley, Plumley and High Legh is currently of the worst affected in our local area with an infection of 559.9 per 100,000 people.

These latest figures from Public Health England show the number of cases during the 7 day period and the infection rate per 100,000 people.

• Alderley Edge and Chelford – 32 386.6 (23.1%)

• Handforth and Dean Row – 39 358.8 (50%)

• Mobberley, Plumley and High Legh – 67 559.9 (97.1%)

• Wilmslow Town – 22 313.8 (-18.5%)

• Lacey Green and Wilmslow Park - 28 424 (75%)

• Fulshaw Park and Lindow - 18 249 (-28%)

• Prestbury and Adlington - 12 234.6 (33.3%)

% = change from previous 7 day period.

During this seven day period, Cheshire East had 961 cases, which represents a 22.6% increase on the previous 7 days. The infection rate per 100,000 is 250.2.



Here's what readers have had to say so far. Why not add your thoughts below.

How many have you overcounted this week PHE.
How many cases were false positives
How many were duplicated repeat tests taken by the same person needing a negative test to go back to work ???????
Cheshire East the council ranked second in England for over counted cases.

I can’t believe anybody who looks at these figures thinks they are correct. It is common knowledge they are fantasy, stop this stupid lockdown now, and get people back to work and off furlough

These figures appear to comply with the complete lack of respect for the rules of lockdown that anyone can see on the streets and in the shops in this area.
Don’t blame the lockdown. Blame the people who continue to flaunt the rules.
They are the people who have put us back in lockdown and no doubt, will have caused this lockdown to be extended and tightened.

Christine McClory is absolutely right. Shoppers in Hoopers without masks, delivery lad in opticians without mask, shoppers at Wilmslow Garden Centre without masks - they can't all be exempt.

Dear oh dear. Still believe the mask nonsense!!! If you do then please explain why the two countries with the longest and severest lockdowns with masks compulsory outdoors (when allowed out) now have more cases (per 100,000) than almost all other countries. One of which uses a PCR test 1000 times LESS sensitive than the UK.
To save the effort Spain and Peru.
It is generally advisable to take the time (and we have had plenty) to research a subject prior to commenting.
I can explain to you but I can't understand for you.

For all that don’t believe go and help on the covid wards. Free ppe if you want to wear it.

Peter and Christine, we are in a lockdown, what essential shopping are you doing in Hoopers, Wilmslow garden centre etc etc?

It seems the selfish covidiots who think they know better than the scientific advice are greatly increasing the covid threat for the rest of us. In particular, the vulnerable.

I wait for these people to post their scientific qualifications and professional credentials on here to demonstrate to us that they are speaking from knowledge, are in a position to peer-review and dispute the accepted science, and are therefore not endangering the lives of everyone else by going against the peer-accepted science and extolling dangerous, ignorant, tin-foil-hat drivel. I somehow think it will be a long wait.

There is room for argument about the balance between lockdown-induced damage and covid-induced deaths, but there is NO argument that in these dangerous times hand-face-space saves lives.

@vince. The science is heavily weighted to left wing lockdown freeks. Just because an advisor says it in number 10, doesn’t make it right. There are plenty of mp’s and science experts who are de bunking this stupidity of lockdowns. If your vulnerable then stay at home. The country should be run for the many, not the few.

Heavy going but quite clear about the validity of PCR test. And therefore “cases”.

That paper reviews studies that were published prior to 15 April 2020. The science has moved on quite a lot since then...

...and whilst you all bicker like spoilt children, covid will have the last laugh.
As a (retired) nurse, I always said folk didn't wash their hands enough. I didn't imagine it would take a pandemic to ram the reality home. If folks can't see it, they love to swear blind it doesn't exist. 'Nah' you hear them scoff 'believe it only when I see it wif me own eyes'....

Bit surprised that Mark Russell thinks the government is left wing. I could have sworn that Boris was Conservative.

@ Vince,

I am persuaded by Dr John Campbell (Google) that the updated advice should be Hands - Face - Space - Ventilate - VitD (Zinc)

For most of the usual suspects on here the current Conservative government isn't nearly right wing enough.

Just for clarity, I have not been in either Hoopers or Wilmslow Garden Centre.I am following the advice given to us.

@christine. I never said the government is left wing.

And how do you know people are not wearing masks, if your lock-downed in your house?

Such petulant behaviour. Arrogance in abundance. Superiority syndrome from a few.

Toxic debate with no winner. Bluster and pontificate all you want. It makes zero difference but I certainly find the comments comical.

Back in march, the debate and differing arguments were mildly interesting.... 6 months on.... not so much. Yawn.

I doubt those who have lost jobs, businesses, livelihoods, relatives in care homes or have untreated non-Covid illnesses, have suffering children, can’t visit elderly parents etc. find the debate less than “mildly interesting “.
