Coronavirus infection rates in Greater Manchester have fallen for the 11th day in a row.
Rates are currently falling fastest in Wigan.
There were 1,250 cases in Wigan for the week ending November 16 the latest data from Public Health England shows.
That is 507 fewer than the week before and over 1,000 fewer than the peak in Wigan on October 27, when there were 2,272 cases in previous seven days.
It means Wigan’s rate, now 380.3 per 100,000 of population, has fallen 45 per cent from its peak level on October 27.
Manchester is the only area to fall further from the peak level, but the city is in many ways an isolated case as its peak was driven by infections in student areas.
The city’s current rate is now the third lowest in the region at 342.1 the data shows.
It had 1,891 cases in the last seven days, 374 less week-on-week, a decrease of 17pc.
Oldham still has the highest rate in the region of 499.8, nearly double the national average.
However it had 1,185 cases in the last seven days, down 440, week-on-week, a drop of 27 percent.
Bury has also seen a steep decrease with 781 cases there in the last seven days, down by 268 week-on-week, a drop of 26pc. Its rate is now 408.9.
