Yorkshire is emerging as a Covid hotspot, according to latest Public Health England data.

In figures released today for the seven days to April 25 – based on the number of people who have tested positive in lab-reported or rapid lateral flow testing, is displaying a worrying surge.

Selby in North Yorkshire continues to have the highest rate, with 97 new cases in the seven days to April 25 – the equivalent of 107.0 cases per 100,000 people.

This is up from 56.3 in the seven days to April 18.

Data for the most recent four days (April 26-29) has been excluded as it is incomplete and does not reflect the true number of cases.

Of the 315 local areas in England, 149 (47%) have seen a rise in rates, 154 (49%) have seen a fall and 12 are unchanged.

North Lincolnshire has the second highest rate, up from 52.2 to 72.6, with 125 new cases.

Kirklees, in West Yorkshire, has the third highest rate, up from 59.1 to 70.7, with 311 new cases.

While other parts of the county, including Barnsley and Wakefield, have all also reported more infections than the previous week.
