Parts of Leigh and Tyldesley have the highest number of coronavirus cases in Wigan borough - but the infection rate remain the lowest in Greater Manchester.
New data published by Public Health England (PHE) shows in the week to August 2 there were four positive cases in the electoral ward of Tyldesley South and three in Leigh South East.
The two areas have been highlighted in an interactive map of the borough which does not include areas with two or fewer cases, meaning the total will be higher.
Wigan still has the lowest rate of infection in Greater Manchester with 7.3 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people, although it has marginally increased from the week before.
The number of positive cases in the borough last reached double figures in the last week of May, when 23 were reported in Pemberton South.
Since then the most cases reported in any single ward is six.
This has prompted James Grundy, the MP for Leigh, and other Conservative politicians to call on the government to ease lockdown restrictions in Greater Manchester boroughs with lower infection rates.
Earlier this week the region’s mayor Andy Burnham said that it would be ‘impossible’ to treat Wigan differently as the virus is ‘endemic’ in every borough.
It was also pointed out that the in late April, at the height of the pandemic, Wigan had more than 120 cases in a single week - the highest in Greater Manchester at the time.
They accused Mr Burnham, a former MP for Leigh, of pursuing a ‘one size fits all approach irrespective of local infection rates’.
But in a letter addressed to the Tory MPs, Mr Burnham stressed that the restrictions had been enforced by the government.
He also accused them of 'not having the courage’ to stand up to their government’s to impose the new rules.
