The confirmed number of coronavirus cases in York stayed the same today (Wednesday, 19 May).

That keeps the cumulative total at 12,339 – giving an overall infection rate of 5,858.5 cases per 100,000 people.

This reflects an ongoing national revision of the figures, after negative laboratory tests that followed a positive lateral flow test were removed.

In the last seven days 22 people in York have tested positive for Covid-19 – down 17 (-43.6%) week on week.

The rolling seven-day rate in York is 12.8 new cases per 100,000 people (27 cases in the week to 15 May). That’s down from 15.7 in the previous seven days (33 cases in the week to 8 May).

The English national average is 21, the Yorkshire and Humber average is 35.5.

There have been no coronavirus deaths in the City of York Council area in the last seven days.
