The locations of 132 newly confirmed coronavirus cases in Yorkshire

There have been over 100 more coronavirus cases confirmed in Yorkshire.

The latest figures released by NHS England today show 132 positive cases of the virus recorded across Yorkshire.

Due to a change in the way positive cases are now being recorded, the number of cases being recorded is greater.

In total, there have been 132 “new cases” confirmed today.

From July 2, government figures include historic pillar two data, which comes from fixed testing sites, mobile and home testing data.

Before today, figures of positive cases only included pillar one figures which came from hospital and health care testing. This is why figures released today are so much higher than previous days.

The real number of positive coronavirus cases reported in Yorkshire:

*It is important to stress these are not new coronavirus cases but ones previously not included from pillar two testing

  • Barnsley – was 1,863 now 1,868 – 5
  • Bradford – was 4,075 now 4,108 – 33
  • Calderdale – was 653 now 654 – 1
  • Doncaster – was 1,950 now 1,956 – 6
  • East Riding of Yorkshire – was 1,628 now 1,633 – 5
  • Hull – was 1,530 now 1,533 – 3
  • Kirklees – was 1,935 now 1,960 – 25
  • Leeds – was 3,578 now 3,588 – 10
  • North Yorkshire – was 2,504 now 2,509 – 5
  • Rotherham – was 1,845 now 1,855 – 10
  • Sheffield – was 3,916 now 3,931 – 15
  • Wakefield – was 1,602 now 1,613 – 11
  • York – was 895 now 898 – 3

From yesterday (June 2) pillar two data is being reported separately by all four nations.

This data in England has had duplicate tests for the same person removed by Public Health England.

Since the first case in Yorkshire, we have published the number of positive cases across the county based on figures published by the government on a daily basis.

However, it was recently revealed those numbers only cover pillar one data.

It means that data from home tests and testing centres have not had their test results included until now.
