However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded in the latest 24-hour period in Doncaster.

The dashboard shows 870 people had died in the area by September 9 (Thursday) – which was unchanged from Wednesday.

It means there have been three deaths in the past week, which is a decrease on four the previous week.

They were among 11,681 deaths recorded across Yorkshire and The Humber.

The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Doncaster.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.

The figures also show that three-quarters of people in Doncaster have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The latest figures show 201,130 people had received both jabs by September 8 (Wednesday) – 75 per cent of those aged 16 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
