Sadly the first time in Greater Manchester that you could say Bolton are in a league of their own. That gulf is what awaits the other boroughs if we let this variant spread. Why I was so frustrated that nobody seemed to be noticing the threat out there as it built up to this and these daily tables made it obvious days ago.
