Bristol news Covid-19 checker lets you see cases within a mile of your home MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - The new NHS tool also shows weekly case information
Breaking News ! The NHS has created a Coronavirus postcode checker that shows how many positive Covid-19 tests have been recorded within a mile of your front door. The tool invites people to input their own postcode and set the radius for the information they would like. This can be set as near as one mile and as distant as ten miles. It shows the user details of the number of cases recorded in each neighbourhood in the last seven days. The data comes from Public Health England and shows the historic number of weekly cases to provide context to the current nature of the pandemic in your neighbourhood. An infection rate per 100,000 people in the last seven days is also provided to allow a fairer comparison between areas of different population sizes.
