The change reflects a national revision of the numbers, after negative laboratory tests that followed a positive lateral flow test were removed.

The rolling seven-day rate in York is 12.8 new cases per 100,000 people (27 cases in the week to 14 May). That’s down from 14.7 in the previous seven days (31 cases in the week to 7 May).

The English national average is 21.2, the Yorkshire and Humber average is 36.9.
