Radlett recorded more Covid cases than any other neighbourhood in south west Hertfordshire over a recent weekly period.

According to Public Health England figures, the village recorded 47 cases between July 3 and 9, which is more than any other area in our corner of Hertfordshire.

But the high number of cases aren't just restricted to Radlett.

Together, the five districts of Watford, Hertsmere, Three Rivers, St Albans, and Dacorum, which makes up south west Herts, are split into 79 areas - what the Government refers to as Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOA).

Every MSOA roughly has a population of around 7,200 although some have a slightly smaller or larger population.

A map updated by the Government everyday helps tell us how many infections have been recorded in each of the MSOAs, such as Radlett in Hertsmere, or Cassiobury in Watford, or Verulam Park in St Albans district.

With infections in Hertfordshire higher than they have been in months, we've created a table which ranks all 79 MSOAs in the five districts in south Hertfordshire, by the number of Covid cases recorded in the seven days to July 9.

Radlett comes top with 47 cases followed by Boxmoor &Apsley in Dacorum with 43 and Central Watford with 42.

The MSOAs which recorded the fewest amount of infections over this period were Rickmansworth North & Loudwater, Chaulden, and Northchurch & Potten End - all of which recorded 11 cases.

We have also provided data which shows the proportion of partially and fully vaccinated adults in each MSOA.

The table tells us that Covid is circulating in every single neighbourhood, with Hertfordshire public health director Jim McManus confirming this week that the Delta variant is the dominant strain.

There have been at least 6,000 cases in the county in July.

The vast majority of cases involve teenagers and those in their 20s and 30s, but there are signs of cases increasing in older adults.

With Freedom Day set for July 19, Britons are being urged by the Government to act with "caution".

Those who have yet to take up the opportunity of a Covid vaccine are being encouraged to do so to protect themselves and others, and in the longer-term, help reduce hospitalisations, deaths, and long Covid.

Hertfordshire’s deputy director of public health Sarah Perman reported on Monday there are already around 40,000 people in the county suffering from long Covid.

Prolonged symptoms can include extreme tiredness, shortness of breath, chest pain or palpitations, memory problems or insomnia, dizziness, joint pain, anxiety, nausea, or changes to smell and taste.
