A map showing the number of coronavirus cases across the district has been updated.

The map highlights coronavirus hotspots across the area by colour coding them according to the infection rate.

The map displays weekly data from March when the pandemic began.

The latest data is for the week leading up to October 24.

It shows the rate of infection in each area and where positive cases have been confirmed in recent days.

It is based on pillar 1 and pillar 2 testing data from Public Health England.

Areas are then colour coded based on the infection rate.

Seven day rates are expressed per 100,000 population and are calculated by dividing the seven day count by the area population and multiplying by 100,000.

In the Maldon district, some areas appear in white, meaning the rate of infection is currently suppressed.

This means there has been fewer than three cases in a seven-day period.

The Southminster, Bradwell and Dengie Peninsula area and Tollesbury, Tolleshunt & Goldhanger all appear in White.
