The areas shown as having zero cases for the week ending 20th March had a total of eight cases spread over four areas, this can only happen if all of the four areas showing zero actually had exactly two cases each.
Office of National Statistic rules require that two cases or less should be shown as zero because two cases or one case apply usually to a single family who might be identifiable. This week the numbers are such that the rule allows us to see the actual numbers even though they are below the threshold, which is not what was intended.
