COVID19 Gloucestershire – weekly data summary
COVID19 intelligence is important to ensure we understand the direct and indirect impact of COVID19 on the population of Gloucestershire.
The COVID19 weekly data summary displays statistics on cases of coronavirus and deaths associated with coronavirus in Gloucestershire.
- Daily confirmed cases
- You can find out how many cases there were in the latest 7 days in your area by using the Department of Health and Social Care’s interactive map
The dashboard includes information about total cases and rates per 100,000 populations by nation, region, Upper Tier Local Authority (such as Gloucestershire) and Lower Tier Local Authority (such as districts). The interactive map shows rates or numbers of cases in each area. When rates are shown, the density of the colour indicates how high the rate is: darker colours mean higher rates. Selecting an area on the map highlights the area in the table to the left.
About the data
These figures are from tests carried out in Public Health England labs/NHS (Pillar 1) and other testing routes, such as mobile labs (Pillar 2).
COVID-19 cases are identified by taking specimens from people and sending these specimens to laboratories around the UK to be tested. If the test is positive, this is a referred to as a lab-confirmed case. This data refers to tests carried out under Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 testing.
Data may be subject to delays in case confirmation and reporting, as well as ongoing data cleaning.Data is based on the date of specimen rather than the result of the test.
Cumulative case counts include patients who are currently unwell, those who have recovered and those who have died.
The different Nations, Regions, UTLAs and LTLAs vary enormously in population size. Areas with larger populations will tend to have more cases than those with smaller populations. To account for the different population sizes, rates are calculated. The count for each area is divided by the total population and multiplied by 100,000. Populations are the 2018 Mid-year estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
The rates are easier to compare than the raw counts, but they do not take into account other factors that may affect the numbers of cases, such as the age of the population or the amount of testing carried out.
