Latest coronavirus infection rates for every place in Yorkshire

Coronavirus infection rates have risen in most of the areas of Yorkshire over the past week.

The latest government data revealed significant increases in several places, including Leeds and Bradford.

In the seven days up to August 23 Bradford recorded 228 new cases, compared with 284 in the week up to August 30.

That translated to an infection rate increase of 42.2 to 52.6, putting the city sixth on the government’s list of most infected areas in England.

Similarly, Leeds recorded 91 more cases on the week before, pushing its infection rate from 21.1 to 32.5.

This reflects growing concern that Leeds could be about to shoot up the government’s Covid-19 watch list.

Leeds City Council chief executive Tom Riordan warned: “The case rate in Leeds is rising, and we are what you might call ‘bubbling under’ the national watch list. Our rates are up to a three percent positivity, which is three in every 100 people tested are positive.”
