THE region's neighbourhoods which have seen barely any Covid cases in the past month have been revealed.

Latest analysis from The Northern Echo has revealed the 84 postcode areas across the North East and North Yorkshire where infections are almost non-existent.

The figures are ahead of the planned easing of further restrictions on June 12, where all remaining limits on social contact and lockdown rules could be lifted.

Most recent Public Health England data, published last night, shows the areas that have seen fewer than three cases in the past week.

The data compares the infection rates for the region in the seven days to May 6, with the seven days to June 3.

Areas with either zero, one or two cases reported are classed as virus "suppressed," and a detailed breakdown is not published in order to protect the identity of individuals.

Such areas are not flagged up as potential hotspots and are effectively classed as though they do not have any cases. 

In the past month in County Durham, some towns and areas including Barnard Castle, Chester-le-Street and parts of East Durham have seen virus figures suppressed.

Meanwhile in Darlington and on Teesside, postcodes including Bank Top, Firthmoor, Harrowgate Hill, Billingham and Saltburn have also recorded little or no cases.
