Confirmed coronavirus cases rise in Leeds as the city’s total number of infections approaches 4,000

A further 18 people have tested positive for coronavirus in Leeds in the last 24 hours, bringing the city’s total to 3,969 confirmed reported cases.

Across Yorkshire, 171 more cases have been recorded, figures published by Public Health England show.

The sharpest increase was recorded in Bradford with 73 new cases followed by Leeds and Kirklees with 18 each.

While this could be due to the number of tests being carried out, Bradford currently also has the third-highest infection rate in the country.

The city has recorded 5,411 confirmed cases of the virus during the pandemic, with an infection rate of 1,002.5 cases per 100,000 people.

So far 32,145 people have contracted the disease in Yorkshire since the outbreak began and 2,578 people have lost their lives in our county’s hospitals after testing positive for the disease.

Due to the way cases are reported by Public Health England we are unable to provide a more exact breakdown of the increase of Covid-19 cases over the past 24 hours in specific neighbourhoods or postcodes.

However, on an interactive map designed by Public Health England, you can view coronavirus cases recorded in specific areas from July 27 to August 2.

This map is refreshed each Thursday with data from the previous week.
