How Romsey coronavirus infections have changed since pubs, restaurants and bars reopened
SINCE the reopening of pubs, restaurants and bars for domestic service in Romsey and Test Valley, coronavirus cases have increased slightly as England emerges from lockdown.
An interactive government map has shown that since May 19 – two days after customers were finally able to ditch their coats and eat indoors again – Test Valley has recorded nine infections.
According to the coronavirus dashboard map, in the week leading up to May 26, when the latest figures were available, the borough documented 11 cases of Covid-19.
Andover London Road & East Anton was the only area to record five infections – up three from the previous week.
He had a weekly turnover rate of 29.5 cases per 100,000 people.
However, there were still 14 areas across the borough that saw less than three cases during that time, meaning they were classified as suppressed.
The government does not show data for these locations in order to protect the identity of individuals.
Some of the places that were nearly Covid-free include Romsey Town, Abbotswood & West Wellow, and Andover Central.
Data up to May 19 showed 15 areas of Test Valley to be nearly Covid-free.

For reference, the map is divided into Super Average Exit Areas (MSOA), which are areas with an average population of 7,200 people.
It then color-codes MSOAs based on their seven-day rolling infection rate, with areas placed within 0-9 (yellow), 10-49 (light green), 50-99 (dark green). , 100-199 (light blue), 200-399 (dark blue), 400-799 (light purple) and 800 plus (dark purple).
Any place labeled “800 plus” is now considered by the government to be a “hotspot”.
