Another 52 coronavirus cases were confirmed in York today (Sunday, 19 September).

That takes the cumulative case total to 21,374 – giving an overall infection rate of 10,129.3 cases per 100,000 people.

In the last seven days 378 people in York have tested positive for Covid-19 – down 109 (-22.4%) week on week.

The rolling seven-day rate in York is 169.7 new cases per 100,000 people (358 cases).

The English national average is 265, the Yorkshire and Humber average is 311.3.

The falling coronavirus rate in York is reflected in the fact that one area of the city – Suth Bank & Dringhouses – now has too few Covid infections (between zero and two) to be counted in the official figures.

There were no coronavirus deaths in the City of York Council area reported today, and none in the last seven days (as at 19 September).

Here are the new cases by area of York for the seven days to 14 September:
