There have now been more than 50,000 total coronavirus cases in York, it was confirmed today (Monday, 31 January).

The total now stands at 50,050 since the pandemic began – which is 2,659 more cases than yesterday.

The huge leap is explained by the fact that the government has changed the metric in Covid case reporting, to now include “multiple infection episodes”.

All these reinfections have been added in to the totals today, which accounts for the sudden rise.

It gives an overall infection rate in York of 23,719 cases per 100,000 people.

The rolling seven-day rate in York is 1,098 new cases per 100,000 people (2,317 cases in the week to 27 January).

The English national average is 1,100.2, the Yorkshire and Humber average is 1,074.7.

There were no coronavirus deaths in the City of York Council area reported today, and four in the last seven days (as at 31 January).
