There are 15 areas in Wales which now have a Covid-19 infection rate in excess of 100 cases per 100,000. This has jumped from three areas to 15 over the last seven days.

There are also now two areas with more than 200 cases. 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.

This data was first released on Friday, June 18. 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 15 places in Wales with more than 100 cases per 100,000 of population and three where the figure exceeds 100.

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.

The three areas with the highest infection rates in each local authority

This is based on the weekly infection rates for the previous seven days per 100,000 people. The data is based on the rolling seven-day average between May 27 and June 2.

If there are fewer than three MSOA listed in a local authority area it is because not enough places have more than two cases.
