The coronavirus rates map for 27 February 2021

More of the coronavirus case map has turned white in York, indicating the areas that have too few cases to be counted.

Meanwhile a further 11 coronavirus cases were confirmed across York today (Thursday, 4 March).

It takes the cumulative total to 11,917 – giving an overall infection rate of 5,658.1 cases per 100,000 people.

In the last seven days 112 people in York have tested positive for Covid-19 – a decrease of 52 (-31.7%) week on week.
