The borough saw a huge spike in infections in late April and early May due to the spread of the Delta variant which gave Bolton the highest infection rate in the country for some time.
During the last few weeks of July and the start of August cases had dropped significantly, giving the borough the lowest rate in the Greater Manchester region.
For much of September, the number of cases being recorded in the borough was rising. However, in the most recent figures, cases had fallen again.
Bolton unfortunately is no longer recording the lowest infection rate in Greater Manchester, with the borough of Manchester now the lowest after a sharp fall in infections recently.
