Saturday update: Big jump in coronavirus cases in York – but this ‘may be a correction’

The rolling seven-day rate in York is 66.0 new cases per 100,000 people (139 cases in the week to 29 September). That’s up from 50.3 in the previous seven days (106 cases in the week to 22 September).

The latest official figures show an increase of 46 coronavirus cases in York.

That takes the cumulative total as of today (Saturday, 3 October) to 1,398 – giving an overall infection rate of 663.8 cases per 100,000 people.

They are part of a UK rise in cases of 12,872 – almost double yesterday’s figures.

However, the government said tonight that due to a technical issue, which has now been resolved, there has been a delay in publishing a number of cases, meaning the total reported over the coming days will include some additional cases from the period between September 24 and October 1.

Here are the new cases by area of York for the seven days to 29 September:
