The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in York has jumped by 109 today (Sunday, 4 October).

That takes the cumulative total to 1,507 – giving an overall infection rate of 715.5 cases per 100,000 people.

It comes as the UK saw a record daily rise in cases of 22,961.

The daily figure includes 15,841 additional cases which were recorded between September 25 and October 2 but not included on previous days because of a technical issue, the government’s dashboard stated, adding Sunday’s data is “therefore artificially high for England and the UK”.

Here are the new cases by area of York for the seven days to 30 September:
