It comes after Public Health England changed the way it reported the figures from Friday.

Revision to historical case data in England also led to the removal of 5,500 cases nationally over three days last week.

The number of positive cases reported in Doncaster by 9am on Monday (May 24) was 101 higher than last Monday.

Figures to date

Cases that are identified through a positive lateral flow test – those which can deliver results within half an hour – are no longer being counted if the person then takes a PCR test, which is sent to a lab to be checked, and receives a negative result within three days.

Overall, the rate of infection in Doncaster now stands at 7,735 cases per 100,000 people, higher than the England average of 6,925.

Doncaster's cases were among the 400,390 recorded across Yorkshire, a figure which rose by 1,911 over the period.
