Latest Covid-19 infection rates and deaths as Yorkshire surpasses 200,000 cases
Written by Rother Radio News on 28/11/2020
Yorkshire has reached another grim milestone after more than 1,500 new Covid-19 cases were recorded in the last 24 hours.
This means that 200,982 people in the region have tested positive for the virus since the start of the pandemic.
Of those, 35,356 people in Leeds have contracted the virus – the highest number of cases recorded in Yorkshire.
A further 43 people who tested positive for Covid-19 have died in Yorkshire hospitals in the last 24 hours, bringing the total to 4,229.
Infection rates continues to drop throughout the region.
With the second national lockdown ending on December 2 and the tiered system coming into force, some parts of Yorkshire could potentially see further tier changes before Christmas.
This will depend on a number of factors such as infection rates and hospital admissions.
