Ah, what better way to spend a weekday afternoon than by finding out how many people in your neighbourhood have got Covid right now?
This map helps you do exactly that. It plots weekly government statistics on to a map of England and then breaks the information down by postcode. It marks any area that has cases by colouring it in blue. The darker the shade of blue, the more cases there are.
It’s probably the most microscopic we’ve got on a map with this kind of germ-loaded data so far. It’s actually plotted by ‘middle super output area’, an area slightly larger than a postcode used by the Office of National Statistics.
You can also hover over each area to find out the exact number, which means we can tell you that at the time of writing, Shoreditch has 11 active Covid cases, there are seven in West Brompton and seven in Clapham North.
There are only a two postcode regions in a dark shade of blue at present – Stamford Hill North showing 38 cases and Clerkenwell with 35. Other areas with darker shading – but not quite as dark – include Bermondsey East with 12 cases, Mile End West with 20 cases and St John’s Wood South with 12 cases.
Check it out to see how well your area’s coping.
