The map allows you to click on your region and check how many positive COVID-19 cases have been confirmed within a specific time frame.

Current data covers the week of July 20 to July 26.

Statistics are expected to be updated weekly on a Thursday.

The latest data from Public Health England has revealed the wide range of infection rates in Greater Manchester on the day the government announced tougher lockdowns for the region.

In Oldham, the coronavirus infection rate was 64.5 cases per 100,000 people in the week ending July 30, while across Greater Manchester, the rate in Wigan was only 5.5.

The rate in Wigan had also remained stable, although statistics showed cases continued to rise in most other boroughs of Greater Manchester until the day the local lockdown was announced.

Trafford had the region’s second-highest infection rate at that time – with 39 cases per 100,000 – but the rate of increase appears to have slowed slightly.

The number of cases rose most rapidly in Bury and Stockport – especially taking into account provisional figures for Friday, July 31 – when the local lockdown went into effect.

Confirmed cases from Stockport have doubled from 41 to 83 during the same period (week ending July 24 compared to week ending July 31).

Salford also saw an increase in the rate of infection, but it was not increasing as quickly as in other areas.

Manchester’s 7-day infection rate hit 36 ​​cases per 100,000 on Thursday, July 30, and Rochdale’s rate continued to decline from 42 cases per 100,000 in the week through July 23 to 29 on July 31.



Stricter lockdown measures are now in place in Greater Manchester

Health Secretary Matt Hancock last Thursday announced new lockdowns for Greater Manchester and parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire following a spike in coronavirus cases.

The new measures – which were announced in a series of tweets – bar people from entering someone’s house or yard, with a few exceptions.

But, as the Manchester Evening News reported, the laws necessary to make the rules legally enforceable were not implemented at the same time.

Legislation governing the area’s local lockdown was only announced yesterday (Tuesday).

Police forces and councils have the power to enforce the new rules and fines of £ 100 can be imposed on those who break the rules.
