The Salisbury areas with the highest rates of new cases have been revealed.

A map on the government's coronavirus dashboard shows rates and case numbers in the UK's four nations, counties and Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOAs), smaller areas with a population of around 7,200.

The areas are colour-coded. Those highlighted in purple and blue have the highest rates, those in green and yellow the lowest.

This is the seven-day rolling rate of new cases by specimen date ending on October 11 for the Salisbury areas shown on the map:

  • Salisbury Stratford (8 cases; 136.3 seven-day rolling rate)
  • Bishopdown (4 cases; 59.9 seven-day rolling rate)
  • Churchfields (4 cases; 59.3 seven-day rolling rate)
  • Wilton, Nadder & Ebble (6 cases; 58.2 seven-day rolling rate)
  • Bemerton (3 cases; 44.0 seven-day rolling rate)
  • Downton & Morgan's Vale (5 cases; 62.3 seven-day rolling rate)
  • Whaddon, Whiteparish & Winterslow (3 cases; 37.8 seven-day rolling rate)
  • Larkhill, Shrewton & Bulford Camp (9 cases; 83.3 seven-day rolling rate)
  • Tidworth & Ludgershall (4 cases; 22.1 seven-day rolling rate)

Seven day rates are expressed per 100,000 population and are calculated by dividing the seven day count by the area population and multiplying by 100,000.

In the seven days to October 12, cases in the Wiltshire Council area have increased by 272

The total number of confirmed cases county-wide, excluding Swindon, since the start of the pandemic is 2,188.
