Covid jab deadline looms on unvaccinated care staff in Doncaster

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

They were among 12,475 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 207,610 people had received both jabs by November 3 (Wednesday) – 73 per cent of those aged 12 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
