South of the Island hit worst by Covid-19

Postcode data shows where those confirmed with virus reside

Towns and villages in the south of the Island were most affected by Covid-19.

It's according to postcode data published by the government, which shows where the 336 people confirmed positive with coronavirus live.  

The most affected communities were those in Castletown, Malew, Port St Mary, Rushen, and Arbory, where there were 125 cases.

This area includes the Abbottswood Care Home, where twenty residents died in a deadly coronavirus outbreak.

It appears the north of the Island hasn't suffered the same level of infection as in the south.

There were ten confirmed cases in Ramsey, nine in Jurby and Andreas, with only three in Kirk Michael.

In Douglas, 106 residents tested positive for coronavirus.
