    Last weeks figures show 29.2 cases per 100,000 which is nowhere near as high as Leicester.

    It is slightly up on the previous week of 26.3 after several weeks of downward trend, but then again Eid was celebrated during that week and the highest areas for infection last week were Deeplish, Newbold and Wardleworth all with high levels of Asian families. Could be a coincidence, but .............

    Our area had either zero or one case, for some reason the figure is given as "Less than 2 or 0" according to Manchester Evening News.

    Could they mean “between” 2 and 0? Typical sloppy journalism.

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    The figures come from this Public Health England map I think.

    The underlying figures are here and there's a link to the map on the associated pages. The worrying thing about the map is the two infected areas of North Yorkshire it shows are mostly fields or moors, hardly anyone lives there.

    The data is based on Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOAs), with a minimum population of 5000 and a mean of 7200, so they should be broadly comparable.

    I am surprised that either of those areas have a population of over 5000.

    The other worrying thing is that the area I live in is called Healey, Skye & Shawclough on this map.

    It's actually Syke, not an island off the west coast of Scotland.

    If they can't even get the names right.................

    You can check here, using the MSOA codes from the map - a free service from StatisticsGalore!
