Covid-19 cases rising fastest in Glasgow West End neighbourhoods

The growth in the number of Covid-19 cases in Glasgow has steadied.

The latest data from Public Health Scotland, covering between November 16-22, shows that there were 1660 positive cases - up from 1618 the week before.

While this marks a rise in case numbers, it is a much smaller increase than the week prior. Three weeks ago there were 1370 cases in the city - a figure which had been dropping week on week.

Which neighbourhoods have the fewest cases?

Cases are not rising in all Glasgow neighbourhoods. Sighthill had fewer than three cases in the week, meaning it was not given a case rate.

The three areas with the smallest case rates are all in the South Side - Nitshill, Carnwadric West, and Kinning Park and Festival Park.
