THE coronavirus landscape in Dunfermline and West Fife is improving.

That is according to the weekly statistics from Public Health Scotland which reveals hotspots in the area for the period from February 7 to February 13.

There were 204 cases of COVID-19 in the past seven days across the Kingdom, but a total of 26 neighbourhoods in the local area had their data suppressed.

Where a local area has fewer than three positive cases, the actual number of cases and population rate has been suppressed to help protect patient confidentiality and to reduce instances where very small numbers of cases drive high rates.

A total of eight areas had more than three positive cases and fell within two categories.

There were six cases recorded in North Queensferry and Inverkeithing; five in Kincardine; four in Rosyth East and four in Hill of Beath and Kingseat.

These areas fell in the category of rates between 100 to 199 cases per 100,000 population.

In the grouping below, four areas in the 50 to 100 category all had three cases recorded.

Crossgates and Halbeath, Dunfermline Brucefield, Dunfermline Bellyeoman and Townhill and, lastly, Aberdour and Auchtertool.
