Liverpool and Wirral are among a list of areas predicted to be new hotspots for Covid-19.

New data analysis from Imperial College researchers has identified the two Merseyside boroughs as amongst those likely to become a hotspot for infections.

Birmingham, Leeds, Sunderland and Gateshead are amongst the other areas that look likely to head into the map’s danger zone.

Researchers at Imperial College London created the map, which is updated daily, to reveal areas of concern and encourage local authorities to take action before it is too late.

The map shows the probability that a local authority will become a coronavirus hotspot in a percentage.

The new data suggests both Wirral and Liverpool are set to become virus hotspots by September 26.

Wirral’s chances are rated at 99% while Liverpool is rated at 95% by the app.
