The Isle of Wight has moved another step down the chart on the government's colour-coded interactive map, comparing the rate of Covid-19 cases.

It monitors the average number of cases per 100,000 people.

The more there are, the darker the colour becomes.

In January, the Island appeared as dark purple.

Today (Tuesday) it is yellow - the last stage before case numbers are so low that data cannot be published.

There are eight stages altogether - from white to very dark purple.

A new death was reported by the Isle of Wight NHS this week, however.

Zoom in on the interactive map, meanwhile, and all individual areas of the Island now have so few cases that they appear white on the map - meaning information cannot be published, to protect the anonymity of those who have contracted coronavirus.

Isle of Wight County Press:

Locally, there are too few cases to publish

Three more cases were confirmed on the Isle of Wight yesterday (Monday), bringing the Island's overall total, since the start of the pandemic, to 6,656.

Overall, in the seven days to March 3, there were 9.2 cases per 100,000 people on the Island.

That is the lowest rolling average since December 10.

There has been a warning that case rates may start to rise again, however, as asymptomatic (people with no symptoms) returning school children are regularly tested.
