AN AREA of Hereford recorded almost no Covid cases in the latest seven-day figures released by the Government.

Hereford South West was classed as having ‘suppressed’ coronavirus and recorded less than three cases in the latest seven-day localised figures up until February 11.

Being classed as “suppressed”, means that fewer than three cases have been recorded in the seven-day figures.

Exact figures in areas lower than three cases are not shown to “protect individuals’ identities”.

Just five Covid-19 cases were recorded in Hereford Central and saw a reduction of 79 per cent, the equivalent of 19 cases, in the seven days up until February 11.
