Easter Sunday brought another rise in the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in York.

There are now 125 officially recorded cases in the city, up from 119 on Saturday, Public Health England figures revealed.

In North Yorkshire, confirmed cases are up to 436, from 410 the day before.

Separate figures published by NHS England showed one more death recorded in the York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

That takes the number of Covid-19 related deaths in the trust to 40.

Here are some of the key figures (yesterday’s numbers in brackets):

  • Total UK cases: 84,279 (78,991)
  • Daily confirmed UK cases: 5,288 (5,234)
  • Total UK deaths: 10,612 (9,875)
  • Daily UK deaths: 737 (917)
  • Confirmed cases in York: 125 (119)
  • Confirmed cases in North Yorkshire: 436 (410)
  • Confirmed cases in East Yorkshire: 204 (187)

Public Health England medical director Professor Yvonne Doyle said the number of people in hospital with coronavirus in the North was increasing.

She added: “We can begin to see London stabilising.

“But on the other hand for Great Britain we start to see other areas increasing, particularly the North West and Yorkshire.

“It’s very important that the message about staying home and social distancing is adhered to because we are certainly not past this crisis’ damage yet.”
