"I flew the nest almost 6 years ago but all my friends and family are still there, along with my heart and soul. "It’s a strong town and I’ve no doubt they’ll get on top of this. C’mon Bolton!" The number of cases of Covid-19 in Bolton has rocketed over the last week, leaving the town with the highest infection rate in the country at 254.9 cases per 100,000 of population - more than ten times the national average.
. Meanwhile, testing has been stepped up as Bolton council aims to track the spread - thought to be driven by the B.1.617.2 strain of coronavirus - and ensure those who are infected are isolating. Council teams hope to distribute testing kits to between 10,000 and 12,000 homes around areas to the south-west of the town centre this weekend.
