Worthing COVID-19 Cases – Includes cases in all West Sussex local authority areas

Government Explanation

Total number of people with at least one lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 test result since the start of the pandemic in each area. The rates per 100,000 resident population give a fairer comparison of the number of cases in each area but they do not take account of the different rates of testing or differences in the age and sex of the local populations. Only data available for the latest reported date are shown.

ZOE COVID Symptom Study – Estimated Active UK and Worthing COVID-19 Cases

An alternative view of UK-wide active COVID-19 cases

The ZOE COVID Sympton Study is run by researchers at King’s College London and collects data from users who have downloaded and are reporting symptoms through the ZOE COVID Symptom Study app.

Please note that this app is not the NHS coronavirus contact-tracing app which is scheduled to launch on 24th of September 2020.

The ZOE COVID Sympton Study app (available for Android and IOS) is a major player in the fight against COVID-19, due to millions of UK users reporting on a daily basis

How the ZOE COVID Symptom Study app works

Once a day the app reminds you to log your symptoms, if any and the data collected is shared on a daily basis with King’s College reasearchers and the NHS.

The reporting process takes less than a minute and once a week a few additional lifestyle questions are asked and on that day the reporting process takes less than 2 minutes.

The app asks if you have ever had a COVID-19 test and if you answer No, you are asked to select from 2 options: “I feel physically normal’’ or ‘’I’m not feeling quite right.” On the six days when no lifestyle questions are asked, that’s it – your report is complete.

If you report that you have had a COVID-19 test, the app will ask you for further details including the result. If you report a positive test, this will be added to the daily total for Worthing and the UK, as shown in the map screenshot above.

When you subsequently test negative for COVID-19 in Worthing and report this in the app, the number of Worthing COVID-19 Cases and UK daily total will adjust (on the next update of the COVID Symptom Study website and app), to show your contribution.

Download the app now and join the research. Your contribution will be invaluable and help win the the fight against COVID-19.

Notes

*Government explanation of MSOA Areas

Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOA) are a standard statistical geography of approximately 7,200 people. Some MSOAs have the same name as local electoral wards and figures should not be compared with ward data you may see published elsewhere.

This means that the name of your Worthing electoral ward may not appear in the map, but data from it is included. One example is the Tarring electoral ward which comes under the Durrington South MSOA name.

**Small numbers: Numbers from 0 to 2 (inclusive) are grouped – Suppression of data

The government feels that disclosing actual numbers of small new cases of positive COVID-19 results in MSOA areas could lead to the identification of individuals concerned. We take a neutral view on this and instead refer you to someone who has published an article about this suppression of data in MSOAs:

https://shawsheet.com/article/local-statistics/

To read Shaw Sheet’s take on suppression of numbers in MSOAs, scroll down towards the foot of the article linked to above and read the paragraph starting with “Suppression of data is often used to ensure the anonymity of individuals in small areas.”
