The South Yorkshire postcodes where Covid-19 cases are rising and falling

Written by on 01/12/2020

With the national lockdown set to end tomorrow, South Yorkshire will enter a new period under Tier 3 restrictions, with new rules in place to try and stop coronavirus from spreading.

The county will join the likes of West and East Yorkshire under the strictest measures, with North Yorkshire set to fall into Tier 2.

The decision to place South Yorkshire in Tier 3 has attracted controversy given there are some areas in the country which have higher infection rates and have been landed in Tier 2.

One of the measures used by the government to decide the tiers is to look at the number of new cases – something which can be viewed in this interactive map.

It breaks down towns and cities across the country into wards, and helps to give us an idea of where coronavirus is spreading faster.

A quick glance at the map shows that there is one area in particular in the whole of South Yorkshire which is virtually coronavirus free.

Crookes recorded fewer than three coronavirus cases in the seven days to November 25 and because of that, the government has neglected to say how many infections there were so as to protect the identities of the individuals concerned.

Here are the other areas of South Yorkshire where Covid-19 cases are falling:

  • Woodhouse Mill, Sheffield – 6 cases (↓ 23 cases; -79.3 per cent), infection rate – 95.6
  • Dore & Whirlow Mill, Sheffield – 13 cases (↓ 24 cases; -64.9 per cent), infection rate – 126.3
