Monday update: Huge jump of more than 700 coronavirus cases in York – as counting methods change

2 weeks ago

York’s total confirmed coronavirus cases leapt by more than 700 today (Monday, 16 November) – as Public Health England changed the way it counted them.

PHE said it has “updated the way it records the location of people who have been tested for Covid-19. Counts of cases and deaths at sub-national level have been updated to reflect this.”

In York’s case, it means there are another 702 more confirmed Covid-19 cases in the city.

This takes the cumulative total to 5,207 – giving an overall infection rate of 2,472.2 cases per 100,000 people.

That means in the last seven days 1,014 positive Covid-19 tests have been added to the total in York – a rise 0f 645 (+174.8%).

However, the counting change hasn’t affected the coronavirus rate in York, which is still relatively low.

The rolling seven-day rate in York is 171.9 new cases per 100,000 people (362 cases in the week to 12 November). That’s down from 192.8 in the previous seven days (406 cases in the week to 5 November).

There were also two more coronavirus-related deaths reported at York Hospital today.

At the University of York, there were 60 individuals self isolating due to a positive Covid-19 test today. Since the previous update on Friday it has been notified of 2 new cases, included in that figure.

At York St John University, there were eight people self isolating due to a positive test on Sunday.

Here are the new cases by area of York for the seven days to 11 November:
