Hyperlocal Lancashire Covid map shows huge drop in infection rates


Coronavirus infection rates have dropped significantly in Lancashire, according to the latest data.

In the week to April 3, there was one area above the 1,000 transmission rate mark and another 11 above 800. Currently, there are no areas with a transmission rate. above 700 after a sharp drop in recent days.

Grimsargh & Goosnargh near Preston, which last week had a rate of 1,127.2 per 100,000 people, has seen a drop of 61.4% and now stands at 416.9.

However, despite reduced infection rates across the county, there are still nearly 30 neighborhoods where infection rates remain above 500. With lateral flow testing now only available at a cost, it is very likely that the actual transmission rates of Covid-19 in these areas – and each area – are significantly higher.

Case rates are given per 100,000 people. Public Health England calculates this by dividing the seven-day total by the region’s population and multiplying by 100,000. This makes it easier to compare cases between areas of different population sizes.

England’s current average is 403.8.
