Congleton Nub News has revealed the latest coronavirus case figures in and around Congleton.

As parents head back to the office, and their youngsters prepare to go back to school, we have seen cases significantly rise.

The latest figures from GOV.UK reveal Congleton COVID-cases have once again reached triple figures.

Positive tests in Congleton are only set to increase as this week's heatwave and returning to school have not been taken into account.

The latest data, listed below, is for a positive test for coronavirus for the seven days leading to September 3 2021.

Please note: these figures are just before most children and teens went back to school, which is a largely unvaccinated population.
