The latest coronavirus infection data has shown that cases in Trafford are once again on the rise.
After briefly going down last week, the latest rates – for the week ending October 22nd – demonstrate that numbers appear to be increasing fast.

That’s actually the second lowest rate of any Greater Manchester boroughs, with only Stockport, at 371.8, below Trafford.

But what’s the picture across Trafford if you dig down into individual areas and villages, or Middle layer Super Output Areas, as Public Health England calls them.
