THERE were no areas in Glasgow where  coronavirus was at the lowest level recorded in the official statistics, in the first week of the New Year. 

When positive tested cases are down to between 0 and 2 cases over seven days, Covid is considered to be suppressed at that time.

Instead, the lowest in Glasgow for the first week of 2021, between January 2 and January 8, were those with a rate of between 50 and 99 cases per 100,000.

Coronavirus: Glasgow areas with the most cases as city sees New Year rise

There were just two of those, City Centre South, with 3 cases and Kelvingrove/University, with 4, shown as the light grey on the map.

The difference in the number of areas with very few cases also shows the spread of the virus across Glasgow in recent weeks.
Just two weeks earlier there had been 19 areas where the virus was considered “suppressed” in that week.

For the the latest week there were another 14 where the rate was between 100 and 199 where cases ranged from 5 to 14 over the seven days, shown as darker grey on the map.

They were Baillieston West, Broomhill, City Centre East, City Centre West, Dennistoun, Dowanhill, Finnieston and Kelvinhagh, Firhill, Gallowgate North and Bellgrove, Kelvindale, Kelvinside and Jordanhill, Scotstoun North and East, Victoria Park and Woodlands.
