Latest heat map shows how Denbighshire and Conwy’s community coronavirus figures compare

HOW are things looking in Denbighshire and Conwy ahead of the latest coronavirus review?

Public Health Wales can show exactly how our different communities compare with their mapping feature which was first added to the daily update provided by health officials in response to monitoring COVID-19 in October 2020.

It presents data broken down beyond the standard local authority areas that people could previously access and now shows how individual communities compare.

The data is gathered using Office of National Statistics figures of middle layer super output areas (MSOAs) and present the rolling number of cases in either a seven-day or 21-day window.

Darker areas indicate higher concentrations of the virus whilst lighter areas show lower transmission rates.

Below, we took a snapshot look of the latest available seven-day period spanning from February 27 to March 5.
