A total of 34,058 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in the area when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on September 13 (Monday), up from 33,594 on Friday.

The rate of infection in the East Riding of Yorkshire now stands at 9,924 cases per 100,000 people.

Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 87,753 over the period, to 7,256,559.

However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded over the weekend in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The dashboard shows 802 people had died in the area by September 13 (Monday) – which was unchanged from Friday.

It means there have been six deaths in the past week, which is the same as the previous week.

They were among 11,727 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 the East Riding.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.

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 more than four in five people in the East Riding have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The latest figures show 251,238 people had received both jabs by September 12 (Sunday) – 83% of those aged 16 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.

Across England, 81% of people aged 16 and above had received a second dose of the jab.

Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
