Many of the northern areas facing tighter lockdown restrictions than the rest of England are among those with the highest rates of new coronavirus infections.
Blackburn with Darwen, we have known for some time, has passed Leicester for new infections as one area has seen them rise and the other has seen them fall.
In Greater Manchester, the only borough to have seen cases come down substantially is Rochdale, but it remains one of the areas with the highest new infection rates out of more than 300 local authorities in England.
Trafford went from 26 cases to 91, which works out at more than 38 for every 100,000 residents.
Bolton has not recorded a rise in the week to 26 July, but provisional data for the week to 28 July suggests it may move slightly up, although these figures are subject to revision as more test results come in.
The health secretary seems to suggest an affected household can go to a household in an unaffected area.

Rochdale has brought in immediate new measures to avoid a reintroduction of lockdown, as the town's director of public health warned the "fight against coronavirus is not over".
The borough follows Blackburn with Darwen and Pendle in urging residents to follow extra precautions such as wearing face coverings in shops and limiting home visitors to two people.
Rochdale Council's director of public health, Andrea Fallon, said: "The fight against coronavirus is not over. "
Although lockdown measures are being relaxed across the country, we can see from our local data that we need to remain vigilant to the threat posed by the disease."
The measures will be reviewed in two weeks.
