Three Covid-19 deaths recorded by Yorkshire hospitals in last day

There have been three coronavirus deaths recorded by hospital trusts in Yorkshire over the last day.

Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust recorded one death in this time, while The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust recorded two.

This brings the total number of coronavirus deaths in Yorkshire hospitals to 2,568.

In England, the NHS confirmed that a further nine people who had tested positive for the coronavirus have died.

Patients were aged between 73 and 92 years old and all but one, aged 75, had known underlying health conditions.

This brings the total number of confirmed reported deaths in English hospitals to 29,338.

It comes as parts of northern England have been placed on tighter lockdown restrictions, as Boris Johnson warns of a possible second wave in parts of Europe.

Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees are affected by the newly restricted lockdown rules, as are large parts of Greater Manchester – including Trafford and Stockport – and parts of Lancashire.
