MetiNews.Com - It comes as parts of Yorkshire continue discussions over a possible Tier 3 lockdown
Breaking News ! With all of South and West Yorkshire now in the government's Tier 2 lockdown, the number of new Covid -cases across the region show no significant signs of slowing anytime soon. Even North Yorkshire hasn't escaped unscathed, with York also being placed into Tier 2 from today (Saturday). Yorkshire leaders are continuing discussions with government officials over the weekend, with the threat that some cities could soon be upgraded to Tier 3 - the most serious restrictions. Analysis of the latest figures from Public Health England reveals just how widespread Covid-19 is across Yorkshire, with Leeds, Kirklees, Bradford and Sheffield the worst-affected areas. There are a handful of areas which are far worse than others though.

Dozens of individual postcodes are considered to be among the worst-affected, but just a handful have seen more than 100 new cases in the most recent seven days of data available. Perhaps surprisingly, nowhere in Kirklees or Bradford recorded more than 100 new Covid-19 cases in the seven days to Monday, October 12, but the following eight areas all did: Leeds Hyde Park Corner & Woodhouse Cliff - 214 Hyde Park - 116 Leeds city centre - 104 University and Little Woodhouse - 104 Sheffield Endcliffe & Ranmoor - 191 Broomhall - 138 Highfield & Lowfield - 127 York Fulford, Heslington & University - 132 Despite the concerning figures above, a government spokesperson has said the infection rate in Yorkshire is falling, albeit only slightly. They said it had slightly decreased over the last seven days which may give some of the worst affected areas a lifeline in their bid to avoid the most extreme lockdown measures of Tier 3. The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said while Greater Manchester’s infection rate was going up, it had declined “slightly” in the North East and the Yorkshire and Humber regions.
