Manchester's sluggish recovery, and which bits of GM have the highest Covid mortality
Two data stories to discuss over your outdoor pints this weekend
Good morning members — after great features about brutalism and local politics in the past few days, we thought we would round off the week with two interesting bits of data that have caught our eye.
One comes from work done by the Centre for Cities think tank, which shows that Manchester’s economy isn’t coming back to life as fast as we might hope. The other concerns which bits of Greater Manchester have suffered the worst mortality from Covid. Spoiler: It’s not where you might think.
And before you read that: there were some spirited and very interesting comments under Dani’s piece about brutalist buildings in the North. Do dive in here.
