The vaccine roll out is in full swing and lockdown has been gradually lifting in Milton Keynes and across England as cases and deaths dwindle.

But with the so-called Indian variant fast becoming a cause of concern for the Government with infections identified across the UK, there are fears the roadmap out of lockdown could be threatened.

The Radcliffe school in Wolverton has announced cases of the Indian Covid variant, today (May 13).

Most Milton Keynes neighbourhoods have confirmed less than three new Covid cases in a week.

The latest figures show five out of 32 neighbourhoods in Milton Keynes, still saw a drop in infections in the latest seven-day period, the first week of May.

In Milton Keynes only four neighbourhoods had more than three new Covid cases confirmed. In instances where there have been less than three confirmed cases the government suppress the exact amount of cases in those areas.

The suppression is done to protect the identity of the individuals who have tested positive. Out of the 32 neighbourhoods in Milton Keynes, exact case numbers are suppressed in 28 areas.

The following neighbourhoods in Milton Keynes have reported less than three new cases of Covid in the past seven-days worth of findings:

Here's a look at the four areas of Milton Keynes that reported more than three new cases of Covid in a seven-day period.

Having two or less cases may equate to a higher infection rate in some of the smaller Milton Keynes neighbourhoods, but due to suppression we can't confirm this.)
