Windsor & Maidenhead wards with the HIGHEST and LOWEST Covid-19 cases (January 21)

LATEST Berkshire Public Health (BPH) figures reveal the number of cases and infection rates in each ward within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

BPH publishes a weekly Covid-19 briefing and breaks down the data by electoral ward.

The data was published yesterday (January 20) and shows the number of reported cases and their infection rate between January 8 and 14.

BPH has rounded the data for each ward to the nearest five in order to protect the identity of individuals.

The latest data shows what the beginning effect has been of the UK third national lockdown – which legally came into force on January 6 – and the results for the Royal Borough have been largely positive.
