TWO areas in the city have seen three or more new coronavirus cases recorded in the last week.

Three cases were recorded in Barbourne and Rainbow Hill and a further three positive cases were recorded in Ronkswood and Nunnery Wood, according to the latest data.

The latest data published by Public Health England shows which areas in the city have recorded three new cases or more in the week between September 5 and September 11 – the latest data available.

Three cases were recorded in Dines Green and St John’s and a further three were recorded in Worcester Town North – the area covering many WR1 and some WR3 postcodes – which includes most of the city centre, Arboretum and Barbourne, between August 30 and September 5.

Three cases were recorded in Warndon East between August 24 and August 30.

The figures are split into several ‘middle super output areas’ – which is used by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) – zones that are slightly larger than postcode areas with an average population of around 7,200 people.

Areas with fewer than two cases are not highlighted by Public Health England in its figures.

A total of 2,820 confirmed cases have been recorded in Worcestershire, according to latest figures by Public Health England.

Of those cases, 463 have been recorded in Worcester, 282 in Malvern Hills and 521 in Wychavon.
