Doncaster has just one Covid hospital patient.

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said it was the lowest figure since the pandemic began.

Earlier this week, the hospital trust said the number of patients being treated on its respiratory ward had dropped to zero.

In its weekly update, a spokesman said: “As of the time of writing, we are caring for just one patient who has tested positive for COVID-19. This is the lowest number since this pandemic began, and a testament to the hard work and sacrifice of local people.
