New Government data has shown that only 20 places in Suffolk recorded more than three coronavirus cases in the past week. 

The figures, known as Middle Super Output Area data or MSOA, breakdown case numbers to groups or villages or areas of larger towns. 

Data is not published for areas that record less than three cases for privacy reasons; meaning that areas not listed here could have recorded between 0 and 2 cases. 

No area of Babergh recorded three or more cases in the most recent data for the week to April 11. 

Over half of the areas that recorded larger numbers of cases were in Ipswich.
