The North East' s most infected coronavirus hotspots have been revealed after new rules plunged the region into a local lockdown.
Many friends and families are now banned from mingling, and pubs hit with a 10pm curfew under t ough measures aimed at curbing the spread of Covid-19.
The measures were introduced to try and tackle the worrying spike of cases in recent weeks.
ChronicleLive exclusive revealed the plans on Wednesday evening. On Thursday morning they were announced by Health Secretary Matt Hancock.
He told the House of Commons: "We must act now so that we can control the virus and keep people safe."
However across the North East, data reveals varying degrees of infection from area to area.
While dozens of people are catching coronavirus every week in some postcodes, in others, the virus is still being kept at bay.
(This information is based on the most up-to-date Public Health England data for the week ending September 13. The number on the left is the ccurrent infection rate, per every 100,000 people, and the number on the right is the current number of cases)
Newcastle upon Tyne - 67.4 (204)
Cases are dotted all over the North East's biggest city, although the infection rate appears to intensify nearer to the centre.
Both of the largest hotspots lie on either side of the centre itself, with 17 cases each in Shieldfield and Elswick.
In the city centre and Arthur's Hill there were 15 cases, while in the adjacent Nunsmoo r and Fenham there were 14 and ten cases respectively.
But the further you drift away from the centre, the fewer cases there tends to be.
Only three of the city's other districts entered double figures.
Both Kenton and Woolsington had a dozen confirmed cases, while in Kingston Park there were 11.
But the further you drifted away from the centre, the fewer the cases.
Byker, which is next to Shieldfield, had less than half the cases (eight).
Then Walker, which is next to Byker, had just four cases.
And there were some areas, such as South Gosforth and Scotswood, which may have had no cases at all.
North Tyneside - 45.2 (94)
The area has the lowest infection rate on Tyneside.
But unlike Newcastle, the map of the region doesn't show any visible trends behind the cases.
Cases are randomly dotted around, possibly in clusters, but by and large, cases are low - especially near the coast.
North Shields and Tynemouth may not have had any cases, while cases in Whitley Bay appear to have dropped considerably.
Yet in both Preston Billy Mill and Monkseaton there were six cases.
But elsewhere there were just smatterings of infections. Most places had three or four cases, with only Wallsend East - with ten - entering double digits.
South Tyneside - 93.4 (141)
South Tyneside's well-documented tussle with the virus sadly doesn't appear to be slowing down.
Cases continue to rise, with multiple hotspots spread across the patch.
By far the worst last week was H ebburn North. There were 23 cases there alone,
Across the whole of Hebburn, there were 44 positive tests - almost half of all the cases in the whole of North Tyneside last week.
But that wasn't alone in driving up South Tyneside's infection rate.

South Shields, Brockley Whins, Biddick Hill and West Boldon all had ten cases.
However for all the hotspots, there wasn't much middle ground, with many reporting rock-bottom rates.
Notably, the likes of Jarrow and Boldon reported as few as zero cases.
Sunderland - 75.3 (209)
The city has struggled to get a grip on the virus.
Much of that has been linked to an outbreak at a charity football match in Houghton, and the map shows.
However while there are infections in and around that area, Ryhope is the city's current infection hotspot.
There were 18 cases there last week, two more than Houghton West.
What's notable about Sunderland though is that there are barely no parts where the virus is absent.
While even South Tyneside has eight postocdes where there were between 0-2 cases, Sunderland only has a pair - Grangetown and South Hylton.
And Millfield, Shiney Row and Thorney Close and Plains Farm are all now in double figures.
Gateshead - 83.6 (169)
LIke Sunderland, infections are dotted the town.
But there are fewer areas with a significant number of cases.
In fact, just three neighbouring postcodes are in double digits - forming a visible hotspot on the large map of the town.
The area with the most current cases is Windy Nook, with a dozen reported across the week.
Either side of it, Low Fell East and Heworth had ten each.
But many are teetering on the brink of joining them.
Bensham, Dunston and Gateshead town centre had nine cases each last week - with several more not far off.
