Doncaster and Bassetlaw hospitals expect have admitted a total of 5,000 Covid patients since the start of the pandemic.

The spokesman added: “Thankfully, only one person with 'active' COVID-19 requires critical care, and colleagues continue to work hard for our patients day and night.

“Please continue to support your hospitals and note that while guidance be changing elsewhere in the country tomorrow, we still require you to wear a mask when entering our sites.

“We also continue to restrict visitors for the time being, and hopefully we will be able to review as our numbers begin to decline once again.”
