Check the latest Covid test statistics for all districts of Yorkshire
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.
