The heat map also details the number of people who flout the lock in a given area.
As of April 7, in East Cheshire – new research suggests that one in 10 households has someone with a coronavirus living in them.
In Cheshire West and Chester, 9% of people living in households have symptoms of the virus, according to the data.
The research is collected by people who download an application from Evergreen Life and enter information about their behavior – which is then used to create the heat map.
People are also asked to indicate if they are self-isolated, have a cough or have a high temperature.
Evergreen Life CEO Stephen Critchlow said, “We asked our 750,000 users to help build a heat map of those with COVID-19 symptoms to help the NHS and researchers better understand how the virus travels and spreads across the UK.

“We have already heard from more than 25,000 people and the questionnaire has been completed more than 40,000 times. “
The data is being shared with the NHS as well as with data scientists from the University of Manchester and the University of Liverpool to analyze the progress of the pandemic.
The app’s CEO explained that research before and after the UK lockout was compared.
He said: “This shows that although many more people are staying at home, the number of people reporting symptoms has increased from 8.1% to 10.4%. “
The data also reveals how many people ignore government directives in Cheshire – with more decisions to flout the lock-up in East Cheshire.
Data show that in East Cheshire, 6% of people admitted not to stay indoors – excluding key workers.
Meanwhile, in Cheshire West and Chester, 4% of people flout the lockdown.
The Cheshire police have already spoken about how they applied the lock enforcement after being criticized on social media.
Elsewhere in England, the area where the fewest people stay at home is in Middlesborough, where 25% of those surveyed admitted that they always go out.
Ryedale, in North Yorkshire, is the region where the least number of people break the lockout, where 98.2% of people stay at home.
Dr. Ian Hall, a reader of mathematical statistics, said: “Evergreen Life users support a better understanding of the local experience of COVID19 disease by sharing their data which will be extremely useful for national and local planning.
“This is an exciting emerging data flow and I look forward to helping interpret the data, with colleagues from Manchester and Liverpool, as it provides situational awareness to users and decision makers. “
