Yesterday, the number of cases in the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Trust region – which includes Doncaster, Mexborough and Worksop – stood at 266 Covid-19 cases and 55 reported deaths from the virus.
According to the latest NHS figures, there has not been a coronavirus related death in the Doncaster hopsitals area since April 16.
However, there is sometimes a delay in reporting deaths and the figures do not include any deaths in care homes or the community.
A spokesman for Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Trust said yesterday: “As an organisation we are over the moon – or is that the rainbow? - to share the news today that we have discharged a further 10 patients who were being treated for Covid-19.
“This means that, as of 5pm today, we have safely cared for, treated and discharged 100 patients in total, who are now back home and recuperating after a battle with this horrible illness.
“We share our very best wishes with these individuals and their loved ones.”
Across South Yorkshire, there have been 2,833 cases of coronavirus, with a total of 316 deaths.
Among the Doncaster deaths are NHS worker, Doncaster Royal Infirmary plaster technician Kevin Smith, Doncaster clergyman Deacon Neil Bailey and guitarist Paul Piercy, a member of local rock group Stafford Galli.
