    How many cases of covid-19 in your area

    On the BBC website the following https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274 allows you to put in a post code or area and shows how many cases have been recorded there.

    Interestingly Bristol with a population slightly smaller than the whole county of Wiltshire has a 30% higher level of confirmed cases. Not surprising as Wiltshire is a very sparsely populated county but best perhaps to stay away from big towns and cities if possible.

    65 cases out of a population of 321,800 in Highland region - 0.02 as a percentage.

            The health boards in Mid/North/West Wales cover huge areas as the main population areas are in the South.

            My area is Hywel Dda University Health Board. 134 confirmed cases, population of 385,615.

              114 cases out of population of 568,210 in Cornwall with 21 deaths . We had very low numbers here until the influx of second home owners came pouring down from London! Very sore point amongst us Cornish folks.

              My step daughter has the virus, probably caught on the Oxford buses which were rammed packed, she wasn’t allowed to work from home until the day before lockdown. She’s normally fit & healthy so we’re hoping & praying she manages to avoid being hospitalised.

                Probably true of Wales too!

                  Well it says there are over 500 cases in Hertfordshire, out of a population of over a 1,000.000 and then underneath it says not all cases have been tested. So they don't really know, it's just a guess I know a couple of people who have rung 111 and just been told to stay in and keep away from people. Unless you are taken into hospital, I suppose we will never really know the true amount .................................................. ...........................Carol

                    I am with you on this Carol - I believe the true numbers to be much higher.

                    On the other hand, I am curious do you know of anyone who has claimed they have had the mild version of COVID 19.

                    The SIL of a sister claims she has had it but she always claims she catches everything

                      Wokingham, 67 out of 167,000, I would guess that many of those will be from folks who commuted into London for work,

                        My elderly neighbour with 'underlying issues' has had it.
                        She was poorly but has recovered at home, on her own

                          I only know one person, who again hasn't been tested, but has been quite poorly. She was prescribed anti-biotics over the phone. So who knows.

                          I know its a really nasty virus, but I feel so sorry for anyone with anything else wrong, our local hospital has closed down most of its wards. My friend works there she said it's eerily empty at the moment. (To be fair lets hope it stays that way, virus wise anyway)

                            298 in Notts out of 823000, around 0.036% of the population. Similar percentage in the city of Nottingham. As others have said, these figures are meaningless as so few has been tested. Even my daughter as a Emergency dept sister, and who thinks she's had it, hasn't been tested. She's back at work and in the thick of it. She does have proper PPE and reports that her dept is quiet, thankfully.

                              I’m not clicking on that link, the details are already available on the net elsewhere. Was rather hoping that this forum would remain a pleasant diversion from all the facts and figures being thrown at us elsewhere online, in the broadcast news and the press. Just saying.
