This report summarises the information from the surveillance system which is used to monitor the cases of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic in Nottinghamshire (excluding Nottingham city). The report is based on daily data up to 26 July 2020.
COVID-19 cases are identified by taking specimens from people and sending these specimens to laboratories to be tested. If the test is positive, this is referred to as a lab-confirmed case.
Data includes lab-confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 from pillar 1 (NHS hospital and Public Health England laboratories) and pillar 2 (commercial partner laboratories) of the Government’s testing programme.
There are many factors that can contribute to the number of cases in an area. As part of local outbreak control arrangements, a team meets daily to review information about new cases to identify where further investigation or action is required.
The maps presented in the report examine counts and rates of COVID-19 at Middle Super Output Area level. Middle Layer Super Output Areas are a census-based geography used in the reporting of small area statistics in England and Wales. The minimum population is 5,411 and the average is 8,363. As such they are larger than electoral wards but smaller than Districts.
Disclosure control rules have been applied to all figures not currently in the public domain. All counts of 1 or 2 have been suppressed.
Data has been sourced from Public Health England. The report has been compiled by Performance, Intelligence and Policy Team at Nottinghamshire County Council.
