THESE are the areas of the Bracknell Forest Borough with the best and worst Covid-19 infection rates in the past seven days.

The infection rate reflects how many people in an area are currently infected with the virus, and is a signifier of how much it is spreading locally.

Some areas of the borough are doing a great job of controlling infection to rid themselves of Covid-19, while others are still struggling to bring infections down despite clear rules on social distancing being in place for more than a year.
