That's the end of our live updates for today and for this week. We'll be back on Friday at 09:00 to bring you the latest on the coronavirus and its impact on our region.
Thanks for joining us and if you want to get in touch with us, please email us email@example.com.
In the meantime, you can find further information and updates about the coronavirus crisis here.
And you could also join Manchester's airport and Royal Exchange Theatre, Cheshire West and Chester Council and many others across the region in showing your appreciation for NHS and caring staff with a round of applause at 20:00.
In case you have not heard about the idea, here's Annemarie Plas, who came up with it, to explain.
