The neighbourhood with the highest number of cases in West Fife was Dunfermline Duloch North and Lynebank where 43 cases were recorded.

This placed it in the 400-plus cases per 100,000 population category.

One neighbourhood, Dalgety Bay East, recorded suppressed figures with under three cases.

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.
