It means there have been six deaths in the past week, which is a decrease on 11 the previous week.

They were among 12,757 deaths recorded across Yorkshire and The Humber.

The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Doncaster.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

Figures reported on a Monday are likely to be lower as a result of a lag in reporting deaths over the weekend.

The figures also show that three-quarters of people in Doncaster have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The latest figures show 208,945 people had received both jabs by November 21 (Sunday) – 74 per cent of those aged 12 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
