CORONAVIRUS hotspots in Slough have been mapped using official government data.

In the latest figures, the virus can be tracked to postcode level - revealed exactly where numbers of people have tested positive for coronavirus over the last week.

Public Health England breaks down the numbers of coronavirus cases into neighbourhoods called 'Middle Super Output Areas' (MSOAs), which are smaller than council wards and based on population rather than geographical area.

The interactive map, which can be found through this link, allows users to type in their postcode and see how many cases were reported in their area and if it has increased or decreased from the week before. The darker the colour on the image, the more positive test results have been recorded.
