The number of coronavirus deaths were revised down in the latest 24-hour period in Doncaster.

The dashboard shows 1,068 people had died in the area by April 1 (Friday) – down from 1,069 on Thursday.

It means there has been one death in the past week, which is a decrease on two the previous week.

They were among 14,599 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 in five people in Doncaster have received a booster dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The latest figures show 173,828 people had received a booster or third dose by March 31 (Thursday) – 61 per cent of those aged 12 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.

A total of 220,866 people (78 per cent) had received two jabs by that date.

Across England, 67 per cent of people aged 12 and above had received a booster.
