Technical problems mean the government’s coronavirus dashboard has not been updated today (Tuesday, 11 August) so we can’t bring you the updated figures for cases in York and North Yorkshire.

Nationally, the Government said that in the 24-hour period up to 9am on Tuesday there had been a further 1,148 lab-confirmed cases of coronavirus. Overall, a total of 312,789 cases have been confirmed.

The number of newly-reported cases is the highest since the 24 hours to 9am on June 21, when the number was 1,221.

Public Health England said 102 new deaths have been reported across the UK, with the total number of people who had died in hospitals, care homes and the wider community after testing positive for coronavirus in the UK rising to 46,628, as of 5pm on Monday.

Separate figures published by the UK’s statistics agencies show there have now been 56,800 deaths registered in the UK where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

There were no more coronavirus related deaths reported by York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust reported today – the total remains at 214. The last death recorded within the trust was on 18 June.

The total includes 134 in York Hospital and 80 in Scarborough.
