THERE are now only three areas of Plymouth where less than one per cent of the population tested positive for Covid-19 in a seven day period
Between December 26 and January 1, only Millbay & Stonehouse, Peverell and Keyham have infection rates below the 1000/100,000 mark - with Keyham being the lowest at 971/100,000.
Plymstock Goosewell & Staddiscombe has the highest infection rate in the city, at 1849/100,000, followed by North Prospect at 1805/100,000.
