The region has 692 neighbourhoods across 21 local authority areas.

Cases fell in 356 of those areas in the seven days up to January 23, JPIMedia Data Team analysis of the Government's Covid-19 stats shows - just 10 more neighbourhoods than half of the region's total.

The latest, third lockdown began on January 5 and stark differences can be seen in which council areas around the region were experiencing a decrease in cases.
