Coronavirus rates are in decline in almost all parts of Powys, new figures showed today.

The latest data from Public Health Wales shows exactly where the virus is circulating in the county – and demonstrate that previous hot spots such as Welshpool and Newtown have seen a significant drop in the rate of new cases.

After a mini spike last week, Knighton and Presteigne have seen case numbers fall once more, while the Rhayader and Elan Valley area has seen a slight uptick in the number of new cases.

Across Montgomeryshire, most towns have seen fewer than three cases.

The update comes after prolonged period of lockdown in Wales, which is finally set to be eased tomorrow after an announcement by the First Minister today.

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.

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