In its weekly update, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said it was caring for just six Covid-19 patients – down from ten last week.

A spokesman said: “At the time of writing, we have six COVID-19 positive patients with us. That is just five at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and one at Bassetlaw Hospital. These are the lowest figures we have seen since early September - a huge achievement.

“The age of those within our care is between 43 and 87, and two require critical care. We wish them all the very best and hope for a speedy recovery.
