The latest figures have been released showing that most parts of Wilmslow and Handforth are now identified as Covid black spots.

The interactive map, produced by Public Health England, has been updated to show where the new coronavirus cases have been recorded during the 7 day period ending on Christmas Day.

The map breaks down areas by 'middle super output areas' and shows that the infection rates have soured in recent weeks as the highly-infectious Omicron variant spreads locally with many local areas coloured black, which means they have a Covid case rate of over 1,600 per 100,000.

These latest figures from Public Health England show the number of cases during the 7 day period and the infection rate per 100,000 people.

• Alderley Edge and Chelford – 128 1,523.3 (23.1%)

• Handforth and Dean Row – 205 1,886.1 (91.6%)

• Mobberley, Plumley and High Legh – 184 1,535.1 (36.3%)

• Wilmslow Town – 117 1,641 (28.6%)

• Lacey Green and Wilmslow Park - 103 1,540.8 (30.4%)

• Fulshaw Park and Lindow - 158 2,176.6 (66.3%)

• Prestbury and Adlington - 74 1,448.7 (54.2%)

During this seven day period, Cheshire East had 5331 cases, which represents a 74.3% increase on the previous 7 days. The infection rate per 100,000 is 1,378.7.
