Bradford has the highest infection rate in Yorkshire with 204.7 cases per 100,00 people. The case rates in Doncaster, Wakefield, Ryedale and Craven have risen since the previous week.

The latest figures, for the seven days to February 18, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two). The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people. Data for the most recent four days (February 19-22) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases. Of the 315 local areas in England, 43 (14 per cent) have seen a rise in case rates, 267 (85 per cent) have recorded a fall and five are unchanged. Images are for illustrative purposes only.
