Public Health Wales released the number of coronavirus cases in all parts of Wales Published March 23rd It provides the figures for areas with an average of 7000 inhabitants, so-called Middle Super Output Areas In practice this means that there are statistics for areas such as Canton in Cardiff, Morriston in Swansea and Porth in Rhondda

This map shows the number of coronavirus cases per 100000 people in each area in the past seven days If you can’t use this map, there is also a graph at the bottom of this article to help you find your community

It is very important to keep in mind that this data is very volatile as it covers smaller areas. If an area has a very small population, even one positive case can be the number of cases per 100000 significantly increase So you should be careful about drawing too many conclusions directly from the information

In Cardiff, for example, Ely West and Cathays South have 6 and 6 respectively 7 almost exactly the same number of cases in terms of cases per 100000 inhabitants Ely West has 975 but Cathays South has only 553 This is because Cathays South has a higher population than Ely West
