Coronavirus cases are rising in one part of Nuneaton according to a new interactive map from the government.

Galley Common appears to be a hotspot for the number of positive cases in the town.

Back in June there were issues with a spike in the Wembrook area of town and, more recently in St Nicolas and Abbey wards.

However, now Galley Common has the biggest number of cases with nine, a 50 per cent rise on previous weeks.

Due to a lag in the data, the figures are for the week ending October 9 but give a snapshot of which areas are hardest hit across the town.

The map shows no data fro some areas including parts of Stockingford, Hill Top, Abbey and Chilvers Coton. The map says information for the areas is “suppressed” but does not explain what that means. CoventryLive has asked Public Health England for clairification.

In the meantime, here is what is happeing by ward.

Changing picture

Health bosses fear that the figures could take a sharp rise across the borough over the coming weeks.

As reported in our newsletter, Dr Shade Agboola, Warwickshire County Council’s Director of Public Health for Warwickshire, told CoventryLive she fears that there could be a rise in cases on the horizon.

“This second wave is being driven by younger people, aged between 18 and 29, they then pass it onto their parents, who then pass it onto their parents,” Dr Agboola said.

“In terms of transmission, things will look different in two to three weeks’ time. That is the worry.

“The most frustrating thing is that the younger people, they know they won’t die from it, they know they may get it, be ill and recover from it, but I am worried about the people they will pass it onto, the ones who are vulnerable. This is not just about their risk, it is the collective risk.”
