Deaths and test results
An unwelcome milestone today with the total number of cases in the City soaring to over 2000 following the announcement of 68 (SIXTY EIGHT) positive test results today.
This means the the number of cases has more than doubled since the 1000 case milestone, which happened as recently as 5th September.
The cases per 100,000 population figure dropped slightly last Thursday to 235.98. This is still higher than the national average.
Last Wednesday saw the largest single day number of positive test results in York at 86.
The neighbourhood with by far the largest number of cases is the University/Heslington/Fulford where there are 82. This is followed by Tang Hall with 40.
By comparison, there are comparatively few cases in much of the west of the City with Bishopthorpe/Copmanthorpe recording only 7 cases. There has been a similar low number recorded in Huntington.
