NEW figures from Public Health Wales show where exactly while coronavirus is circulating within the Powys community.

The map – provided by health officials in response to COVID-19 - presents data broken down beyond the standard local authority areas and shows how individual communities compare.

Lately we have switched to a weekly rather than three-weekly snapshot of the figures, and included the south of county, beyond the County Times' traditional patch.

There is a mixture or rising and falling case numbers across the county, with the highest rise found in Brecon, followed by the Knighton and Presteigne area which has seen an increase in the last seven days up to February 13, although case numbers for the area are still far below what they have been previously.

The Newtown north area has seen the biggest decrease in the same time period.

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. The map details state that case numbers are suppressed for any MSOA where there were fewer than three identified cases.
