In Wigan, the number of cases per 100,000 population was down 47% from the previous seven-day period.

All other Greater Manchester boroughs saw positive tests drop by more than 30% in the week ending July 25.

The roll-out of the vaccine, school holidays and the so-called “pingemia” are believed to be some of the factors behind the dramatic drop in infection rates.

Scientists, however, urged caution about the apparent fall numbers, with suggestions that the impact of the latest lockdown easing is yet to be felt.

It is believed that the impact of ‘freedom day’ may not be felt for a few weeks, with Boris Johnson warning against drawing ‘premature conclusions’.

The most up-to-date hospital data for the week ending July 25 showed a total of 388 patients were admitted to NHS hospitals in Greater Manchester with Covid-19.
