Leeds hospitals have gone four days without recording any new coronavirus deaths, the latest figures reveal.
Data published by Public Health England today shows that the two NHS Trusts in the Leeds (Leeds Teaching Hospitals and Leeds Community Healthcare) have not recorded a single death since Thursday.
It means the death toll for Leeds remains at 340.
The same good news was reflected across Yorkshire.
None of the region’s hospitals have recorded a coronavirus death over the past four days, making it the longest period without a fatality since the first patient died on March 14.
Nationally, just two more people have died with Covid-19. Their deaths were recorded at hospitals in North Cumbria and Dartford in the past 24 hours.
However, the lower figures could be due to the fact that the recording of Covid-19 deaths is delayed on weekends and bank holidays.
