Huge areas of Greater Manchester have 'suppressed' coronavirus, yet cases are creeping up in some neighbourhoods, official data reveals.

The Covid-free zones can be revealed via an interactive map charting the number of positive Covid-19 test results in each neighbourhood across the country using Office for National Statistics (ONS) data.

It also reveals the number of infections per 'neighbourhood' per 100,000 people in the week ending May 1.

The 'suppressed areas' are those with only a handful or no cases and are shaded in white on the map.

Yet four areas of Bolton - Daubhill & Fernhill Gate, Rumworth North, Rumworth South and Lever Edge - recorded infection rates above 200 per 100,000 people in the same week.

The borough currently has the second highest rate in the country, only behind Hyndburn in Lancashire.

Bolton council public health bosses have previously confirmed that cases of both the South African and Indian variants of coronavirus have been discovered in the town.

The M.E.N. understands that the council has now approached the government to ask for surge testing to be used in specific parts of Bolton.

A handful of neighbourhoods in Bolton have seen cases spike in the last two weeks

Elsewhere in the region, 198 individual neighbourhoods are currently classed as having suppressed Covid-19 according to the map.
