THE 10 Test Valley areas that are nearly Covid-free have been revealed in new Government data.

A map on the Government coronavirus dashboard, in the week to April 16, shows the locations across the borough with fewer than three cases.

This means the data for these areas is suppressed to protect individuals' privacy.

The places with fewer than three cases are:

  • Romsey Town
  • Romsey Cupernham & Halterworth
  • North Baddesley & Braishfield
  • Abbotswood & West Wellow
  • Nether Wallop, King's Somborne & Dunbridge
  • Over Wallop & Shipton Bellinger
  • Andover Charlton & Bourne Valley
  • Andover Newbury Road
  • Andover South
  • Chilbolton, Clatford & Barton Stacey

The interactive map breaks down infections in England into small areas with a population of around 7,200 called Super Middle Output Areas (MSOAs).

For each MSOA, the map shows the number of cases in the past week, increases or decreases compared to the week before and the rate of cases per 100,000 people.

In the seven days to April 16 cases have fallen slightly in Test Valley with 25 infections recorded - down by 15 on the previous week.

The borough has a weekly rolling rate of 19.8 cases per 100,000 people.

This means Test Valley has an above average case rate compared to the UK average.

There are just two areas where Covid cases are rising.

They are:

  • Valley Park
  • Andover Central
