UPDATED figures show how coronavirus infections have changed in each Bolton area over the last week.

New data from Public Health England shows confirmed cases of covid-19 for people tested between August 27 and September 2 by Middle Super Output Area, geographical areas of around 7,200 people.

The figures, which are updated each day, have been used to create a map of each reported case across the UK.

Latest data shows where 294 cases were confirmed in those seven days – although areas with one or two confirmed cases are not shown on the map.

Figures from August 21 to August 27 showed just 78 cases on the map.

The statistics show the area of Breightmet South and Darcy Lever had the most new cases in Bolton, with 33 people testing positive for covid-19.

Tonge reported the second highest new cases, with 21 positive tests – up from a number too low to report in the week before.

Hall I' th' Wood and Smithills both saw 17 new cases, whilst Central Bolton is reporting 16 new infections.

Heaton and Deane recorded 14 infections, whilst Rumworth South saw 13, and Breightmet North saw 12.

Farnworth North, Lever Edge, Little Lever, and Springfield and Great Lever all recorded 11 new cases, whilst Highfield and New Bury, Daubhill and Fernhill Gate, and Astley Bridge and Waters Meeting reported ten infections.

Rumworth North was the only area which saw no change, reporting eight cases in both weeks.

Harwood and Eagley and Sharples also recorded eight infections, whilst Kearsley and Stoneclough saw seven new cases, and Over Hulton and Gilnow and Victory saw six.

Dunscar and Egerton had five residents test positive for the virus.

Five areas – Farnworth South, Westhoughton West, Harper Green, and Lostock and Ladybridge – each saw four new cases, whilst Doffcocker and Moss Bank, Blackrod and Butterwick Fields, and Horwich South and Middlebrook recorded three new infections.

No figures were available for Westhoughton Daisy Hill, Westhoughton East, Horwich East, Horwich North, or Bromley Cross and Bradshaw, which may mean that they reported zero, one, or two new cases of covid-19.
