Breaking News ! Only one area across Bristol recorded fewer than ten coronavirus cases in recent days, the latest government data shows. In comparison, a fortnight ago, more than half a dozen neighbourhoods were recording such low number of cases - reflecting the rise in cases across the city. The latest data, which covers the seven days to January 7, shows only three neighbourhoods in Bristol recorded infection rates below 200 per 100,000 - which is the same number as a couple of days ago. However, two of those areas (Westbury On Trym and Kingsdown & Stokes Croft) are seeing their infection rate rise, by more than 25% in the city centre area and by 12% in Westbury on Trym. You can find out more about why cases are so low in Stokes Croft here. In the past couple of weeks, the number of areas in Bristol with high infection rates has shot up and, earlier this week, the figures showed there were eight neighbourhoods in the city with a case rate above 800 per 100,000 - placing them in the worst category in the government map. But the latest government data seems to suggest the rise in neighbourhoods reporting high infection rates is starting to show signs of slowing down. Are 24 hours vaccinations the way forward?

Where is the data coming from? You can see the latest national data on the government's website. The map displays weekly data, which are updated everyday. The data can be viewed by local authority but also by smaller sections called 'Middle Super Output Areas'. The map highlights which areas of the nation have three or more confirmed cases of the virus and colour co-coordinates the areas by how many cases they have.
