The 13 areas in Sunderland with less than five Covid cases in one week
As the number of Covid-19 cases continue to fall, here are the 13 areas in and around Sunderland which have recorded less than five positive cases in one week.
For the first time since before September 10, Sunderland’s overall Covid rate has dropped below 100 per 100,000 people.
Latest figures published by the Government show the rate is 84.3 positive cases per 100,000 for the week to March 5 – a total of 243 positive cases across Wearside over the same period.
The case rate takes into account the number of people living in each area compared to the number of people who have tested positive for the virus and are measured by 100,000 people.
The figures are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two). Pictures are for illustrative purposes only.
