There is only one part of Wales which has a Covid-19 infection rate in excess of 100 cases per 100,000 people in the last seven days.

New data released by the Welsh Government and Public Health Wales has revealed the number of cases of Covid-19 in every community in Wales.

Public Health Wales publishes the figures and this data was published on Tuesday, May 11. It provides the numbers for areas with an average of 7,000 people, called middle super output areas (MSOA). In practice this means there are statistics for areas like Canton in Cardiff, Morriston in Swansea, and Porth in Rhondda.

The data shows there are 10 places in Wales with more than 100 cases per 100,000 of population.

The areas with the most cases are:

  • Stow Hill, Newport - 137.2
  • Cathays South & Bute Park, Cardiff - 94.7
  • Malpas, Newport - 89.3
  • Harlech & Llanbedr, Gwynedd - 84.1
  • Splott, Cardiff - 81.1
  • Pembrey & Burry Port, Carmarthenshire - 72.2
  • South Riverside, Cardiff - 67.3
  • Butetown, Cardiff - 64.8
  • Llanfyllin & Llanwyddyn, Powys - 54.7
  • Cyncoed North, Cardiff - 50.6

This map shows the number of coronavirus cases per 100,000 people for each area in the last seven days. If you can't use this map there is also a chart you can use to search for your community at the bottom of this article.

It is really important to bear in mind that this data is very volatile because it covers smaller areas. Where an area has a very small population even one positive case can push up the cases per 100,000 significantly. You should therefore be cautious about drawing too many conclusions directly from the information.
