Coronavirus infection rate continues to grow in Yorkshire, as in 13 districts are seeing a surge

Coronavirus infection rates are continuing to rocket across Yorkshire, according to the latest worrying figures.

Data published by Public Health England show that cases rose significantly in Bradford, Leeds and Doncaster.

The infection rate across the majority of cities in Yorkshire increased and only six places out of the 19 saw rates fall.

The figures, for the seven days to September 20, 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 three days (September 21-23) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.
