Speaking at a council meeting on Wednesday (January 20), Salford city mayor Paul Dennett said there is still much to do in the fight against coronavirus.
He said: "Colleagues will be aware that Salford had its first positive case of the coronavirus on March 15, 2020 and a week later, 57 individuals in Salford had tested positive for coronavirus.
"To date, there's been 18,268 cases of Covid in Salford and the latest transmission rate for Salford is 392.5 rate per 100,000 in the last seven days.
"The new variant, that we're seeing up and down the country - first seen in London and the South East - has moved North and remains concerningly high.
"It's more important than ever that we continue to follow public health advice and guidance and the rules, continue to support our residents and communities wherever we can.
"And there's still much to do in the ongoing fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
"However, it’s important to remember the things that we've achieved in 2020 despite the many challenges we’ve all faced.
"We worked together as one team to deliver our essential services to the people of Salford and continued to demonstrate the 'Spirit of Salford' in all that we did.
"It’s also important to acknowledge that there is an end in sight and optimism for the future, which starts with vaccines and a pathway to control the virus."
