UPDATED figures show which areas in Bolton have seen new cases of coronavirus.

Data released by Public Health England has been used by the Office for National Statistics to create a map of each reported case of covid-19 across the UK.

The figures, which are updated each day, show confirmed cases of coronavirus for people who were tested between August 22 and August 28 by Middle Super Output Area, geographical areas of around 7,200 people.

In that time, 110 cases have been reported in the borough according to this map, although areas with one or two confirmed cases will not have any data shown.

Yesterday, just 78 cases were shown.

The statistics show the area of Breightmet South and Darcy Lever had the most new cases in Bolton, with 16 people testing positive for covid-19.

Breightmet North was hot on its heels with 10 new cases, up from the five it was reporting in yesterday's figures.

Tonge, Hall I' th' Wood, and Farnworth North were also high up on the list, with nine, eight, and seven new cases respectively.

Daubhill and Fernhill Gate, Rumworth North, and Smithills all reported six new cases, whilst Lever Edge and Heaton and Deane reported five.

Rumworth South, and Gilnow and Victory saw four residents test positive for the virus.

Eight areas – Little Lever, Springfield and Great Lever, Harper Green, Lostock and Ladybridge, Eagley and Sharples, Blackrod and Butterwick Fields, Highfield and New Bury, and Kearsley and Stoneclough – each saw three residents testing positive for the virus.

No figures were available for the remaining areas, which may mean that they reported zero, one, or two new cases of covid-19.
