Some areas in Salisbury have been taken off the government's coronavirus hotspots map.

Churchfields and Bishopdown are no longer highlighted in light blue, the colour used to identify places with three to nine cases.

However, the Stratford ward has seen infections increase to seven.

Bemerton (3), Wilton, Nadder & Ebble (9), Larkhill, Shrewton & Bulford Camp (10), Tidworth & Ludgershall (7), Netheravon & Upavon (4), Downton & Morgan’s Vale (4) have remained the same, according to the latest data shown on the map.

This is based on cases reported by October 11 with specimen dates between October 3 and October 9.

In the seven days to October 10, 232 new cases were reported in the Wiltshire Council area compared to just 147 in the week to October 3.

The rate of new cases per 100,000 people has gone up from 29.4 to 46.4 as a result.

Public Health England figures on the government’s coronavirus dashboard also show that as of Tuesday, October 13, 2,035 people have tested positive for Covid-19 in the Wiltshire Council area since the pandemic began.

Of these, 40 were reported yesterday.
