Hospital patient numbers and deaths
There has been an increase in the number of patients being treated for COVID in local hospitals.
There have been no further deaths
The latest government figures covering the period up to 11th June show there have been no further deaths of York residents. The total number of fatalities remains at 379.
103 positive test results. Brings cumulative total up to 13,139
The number of cases in the City has increased from 238 to 269
The 83 positive test results recorded on Tuesday was the highest single day figure seen since 20th January 2021.
Rate /100k pop rises to 126.77. However the infection rate is now rising rapidly with the 200 threshold likely to be broken next week.
The University/Fulford area now has an infection rate above 400. It is the first time that we have seen that threshold exceeded since January 2021. At 441% week on week the infection growth rates are the highest seen anywhere in the City this year.
Several other neighbourhoods – mainly on the east of the City – are also showing very high infection growth rates.
Perhaps surprisingly there has been little public comment or action from the responsible authorities about this deteriorating situation.
Over 50% of adults in all neighbourhoods in York have now had their first jab. There have been big increases this week in areas like Heslington and Tang Hall
Neighbourhoods with the largest percentage of double doses are Dunnington. Wigginton and Bishopthorpe

- Of these, 4.0% were positive. That is higher than the 3.9% found during the previous period
- In additional 3381 lateral flow test were conducted on 23rd June.
