More coronavirus cases confirmed in Yorkshire as county’s total passes 32,000

A further 171 people have tested positive for coronavirus in Yorkshire, figures from the last 24 hours 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.
