Latest graph point for testing in week to February 25 may not yet show all results Latest figures appear to now show figures falling in most parts of Yorkshire, although figures have wavered upwards in a small number of areas this week.

See our Latest figures page for details.

Yorkshire-wide figures compiled since March last year now show one district where more than 10% of the population have tested positive for Covid-19 at some time over what is nearly a year. Pendle, the district of Lancashire which includes the historic Yorkshire towns of Barnoldswick and Earby, is first to reach that level. Next highest at 9.1% is the Oldham district of Greater Manchester, half of which is of Yorkshire origin. Middlesbrough is third-highest at 8.4% and Bradford is not far behind that at 8.3%. The figures do not, of course, include those who suffered mild symptoms of Coronavirus who have not had a test.

First dose vaccinations pass 20 million

First dose Coronavirus vaccinations had reached over 20.2 million by the end of Sunday, the last day of February.

More than 815,000 of those have now also had a second dose.

The UK population is around 68 million of which around 56 million live in England.
About one-tenth of the population in England live in Yorkshire.
The NHS combines Yorkshire and North East regions in its figures and more than one in seven of the English population live in that area.

In England, the number of first doses is now over 17.2 million with second doses falling just short of 600,000 by the end of Sunday.

NHS England combines figures for Yorkshire and North-East regions, where there have been more than 2.66 million first vaccine doses while nearly 99,000 people have had their second dose.

Three vaccines have so far been approved, the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, approved in December, the University of Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, which started to be used on January 4 and more recently there was approval of the Moderna vaccine. All these vaccines require a second dose after an interval which may vary depending on the vaccine given. Other vaccines are now awaiting approval.

You can book an appointment online without being contacted by the NHS if you are aged 60 or over, if your have previously received a letter saying you are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable); if you are an eligible frontline health worker or eligible frontline social care worker or if you are eligible for Carer's Allowance.

There are three types of vaccination site: vaccination centres at large venues such as football stadia accessed by a national booking service; hospital hubs run by NHS Hospital Trusts; and local vaccination centres run by GP and pharmacy teams working with local NHS primary care networks.

Government adjustment to Covid-19 figures

A significant adjustment was made by Government to its cumulative total statistics for Covid-19 positive tests on Monday November 16, this also involved the alteration of statistics retrospectively all the way back to September 1. The figures wiped hundreds of cases off the previously published statistics in many Yorkshire districts, including those in North Yorkshire, while there were upward increases in  Leeds,  Sheffield and  York district local authority areas. This manipulation of the statistics may be reflected in our graphs appearing on this page from time to time, which are now drawn to the Government's revised figures.
