Greater Manchester has been under tier 3 coronavirus restrictions for nearly a week now but infection rates continue to rise across much of the region.

28 deaths were also recorded in hospitals across Greater Manchester with cases rising in all 10 boroughs.

Worryingly, many boroughs are recording their highest infection rates of the whole pandemic.

Bury has the 6th highest infection rate per 100,000 people in Greater Manchester.

In the seven days leading to October 23 Bury recorded an infection rate of 529.3 per 100,000 people, with 1,011 positive tests in this time.

Since the start of the pandemic Bury has had 5,996 confirmed positive cases of coronavirus.

The five boroughs above Bury are all recording 7-day infection rates of over 550 or 600 per 100,000 people.

Oldham has the highest rate of infection and is continuing to rise with a rate of 660.9 per 100,000 people in the seven days leading to October 23.

Wigan (2nd) and Salford (3rd), which both border Bolton, are not far behind with rates of 638 and 622.4 respectively.

Rochdale is over 600 per 100,000 people with 611.9 in the seven days to October 23.

Bolton's infection rate is also rising having recorded 1,601 cases up to October 23, equalling 556.8 per 100,000 of the population.

Manchester, having peaked at 583.5 on October 3, is at 506.3 but on the rise again.

Tameside has reached an infection rate of just over 500 per 100,000 people for the first time since the pandemic begun.

Trafford and Stockport are recording the lowest infection rates in the region, but both are on the rise.

Trafford recorded an infection rate of 445.7 for the seven days up to October 23, another rise for the borough week-on-week.

Stockport is looking set to go over 400 cases per 100,000 for the first time as its rate continues to rise.

However, in the seven days to October 23 it recorded a rate of 393 per 100,000.
