SOME 422 newly-confirmed cases of Covid-19 were recorded across the Highland Council area in the seven days up to January 13 - the most recent date for which data has been released by Public Health Scotland.

This equates to a Covid-19 infection rate across the Highlands of 178.9 cases for every 100,000 residents. Scotland’s rate was 232.8.

Invergordon is currently the worst affected community in the region, with 73 newly-confirmed infections across the seven days to January 13 - an infection rate of 1653.1 cases per 100,000 people. Outbreaks in two of the town’s care homes are believed to be responsible for a number of those cases.

Neighbouring Alness is also badly hit, with 52 newly-confirmed infections over the same seven day window - an infection rate of 880.8.

But what's the most recent infection rate where you live, and how does that compare to the Highland-wide and Scottish figures? See the list below to see what the situation was like near you at the time of writing (Saturday afternoon).
