The latest figures from Public Health England show that in the week to November 12, the Greater Manchester-wide infection rate was 440.5 cases per 100,000 population.
That’s an 18% drop week after week.
But the region’s infection rate is still well above the UK average of 271.8.
However, the national average is up 10% week-on-week, suggesting the virus has yet to peak in many parts of the country.
Wigan saw the biggest drop in Greater Manchester.
His rate of 464.9 was down 35% the week before.
Oldham is still the hardest hit borough in the region.
But his infection rate has now fallen below 600 as the district has seen a 25% drop in cases.
Rochdale – the second worst affected region – saw its rate drop 14% to 531.
But while this is good news, a number of neighborhoods in the borough are still experiencing an increase in cases, such as Manchester Evening News reported Monday.
In September, Manchester had the highest infection rate in the country following an increase in cases when students returned to university.
Today, the city is the third least affected arrondissement in the region after its infection rate fell 16% to 385.3.
Trafford, with an infection rate of 361.5, down 7%, and Stockport, from 339.1, down 13%, are the two areas with the lowest number of cases in the region.
