The ten areas of Wales with the worst Covid rates

THESE ten areas of Wales currently have the worst Covid rates in the country.

All of the top ten have seen Covid cases in more than 1 in every 100 people over the last seven days.

MSOA (middle layer super output areas) data released by Public Health Wales shows the ten areas that have some of the highest rates in Wales.

The latest weekly figures reveal two areas have rates north of 1,700 cases per 100,000 people.

The highest rate across Wales is Pontardawe, in Neath Port Talbot.

The area recorded 212 new cases in the seven days between September 12 and September 18.
