The number of areas in Winchester District still experiencing cases of coronavirus has fallen, according to the latest government data.
The total number of cases in the week leading up to March 7 is 27 – a decrease from 41 the previous week – a decrease of 34.15%.
Based on data from Public Health England, an interactive map shows the last seven day period available shows there are five cases of Covid cases recorded, up from eight in the previous week.
For each area, the map shows the number of cases reported in a weekly period, the rolling rate of new cases over seven days, and any changes.
