THE city’s coronavirus ‘hotspots’ with the highest number of new infections have been revealed.

Several areas in Worcester saw ten or more cases recorded in the week up to October 30 – the latest data available.

A total of 18 cases were recorded in Barbourne and Rainbow Hill during the week – the most in any area of the city.

Seventeen cases were recorded in Dines Green and St John’s, 16 cases were recorded in Northwick and 15 cases were recorded in St Peter’s.

A total of 14 cases were recorded in Worcester Town South - which covers most of the city centre towards Worcester Cathedral as well as Sidbury, parts of London Road, Wyld's Lane and Lowesmoor.

Fourteen cases were also recorded in King George’s Field - which covers WR3 and WR4 postcodes including parts of Astwood Road, Tolladine Road, Langdale Drive, Brickfields Road and Blackpole Road – during the week.

Twelve cases were recorded in Henwick during the same period.

A total of 11 cases were recorded in Worcester Town North - the area covering many WR1 and some WR3 postcodes and includes most of the city centre, Arboretum and Barbourne. Seven cases were also recorded in Battenhall and Diglis.

Seven cases were recorded in both Warndon West and Battenhall and Diglis, six cases were recorded in Warndon East and five cases were recorded in Lyppard Grange.

Five cases were also recorded in Lower Wick and Bromwich Road.

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

The latest data published by Public Health England shows which areas in Worcestershire have recorded three new cases or more between October 24 and October 30.

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

Elsewhere around the county, a total of 12 cases were recorded in Evesham East and 12 cases were recorded in Harvington, Offenham and Badsey.

A total of 12 cases were also recorded in Crowle and Tibberton and 19 cases were recorded in Hartlebury and Wychbold.
