Area breakdown of the 345 new coronavirus cases recorded in Yorkshire

A further 345 people have tested positive for coronavirus in Yorkshire over the past two days.

This brings the total number of confirmed and reported cases in the county to 32,970.

The latest figures published by Public Health England are thought to be from the past 48 hours, rather than the usual 24 because no figures were released yesterday due to “technical difficulties”.

While testing has been ramped up in parts of West Yorkshire currently facing extra restrictions, infection rates have also been increasing.

Because of that, the government announced this week that stricter measures will remain in place in Kirklees, Bradford and Calderdale for at least another week.

The lowest number of new cases were reported in York, Hull and Doncaster, with three, three and five new cases respectively.
