The 18 Peterborough neighbourhoods to see a fall in COVID cases - and the four to see a rise
A total of 18 Peterborough neighbourhoods saw a fall in COVID cases last week - but four saw the number of cases increase.
The area with the highest number of cases and the highest rate (57 positive tests and a rate of 567.2) remains Millfield and Bourges Boulevard - although there was a drop of four positive tests.
The high rate has been partially blamed on an outbreak in HMP Peterborough - although earlier this week Dr Liz Robin, director of public health for the city, said there had been a reduction in cases at the jail.The figures from the Government only record the number of cases in an area if it is three or above - and Bretton Park was the only area in the city to fall below that figure - meaning the rate and the number of cases - and how many it was reduced by - is not available.
Of the other areas to see a fall, the biggest drop was seen in Central Park and Orton Malbourne and Goldhay, which both saw 18 fewer cases than the previous week.
