The number of infection rates across Cork have risen significantly with nearly 40% of local areas having infection rates above the national average 

However the figures show that towns such as Kanturk and Bantry are almost virus-free, with less than five cases detected in the two-week period, ranking them among a small number of areas with the lowest possible infection rate.
