Six neighbourhoods across North Staffordshire now have infection rates which are close to the national average.
A colour-coded map shows which areas are seeing significant drops in the number of positive Covid-19 cases.
It goes from white – where the virus is being suppressed – through to green where cases are low and then through gradually darker shades of blue as the numbers increase and finally to a claret colour.
While the claret colour still dominates the map in North Staffordshire, there are now five places out of 67 which are now pale blue which means they had an infection rate of between 101 and 200 per 100,000 residents in the week to November 24.
One area – Biddulph Moor and Rudyard – is shaded in green after the infection rate there dropped to 93.4 over the same time frame.
The national average even day rolling infection rate was around 155 per 100,000 people on the same date.
However, the good news is that across the whole of North Staffordshire infection rates are coming down.

1: Biddulph Moor and Rudyard – 93.4 per 100,000 with 7 cases over seven days (-77.4 per cent)
2: Leek South and Cheddleton – 127.3 per 100,000 with 14 cases over seven days (-60 per cent)
