|County||Today’s cases (to midnight 01Apr2021)||5 day moving average (to midnight 01Apr2021)||14-day incidence rate per 100,000 population (19Mar2021 to 01Apr2021)||New Cases during last 14 days (19Mar2021 to 01Apr2021)|
~The 5-day moving average of the number of new cases provides an appropriate indicator of current daily case numbers within a county. It takes account of any validation of cases for previous days and smooths out daily/weekend fluctuations in case numbers.
