This is because the daily totals can fluctuate between local authority areas, with cases rising in other parts of Yorkshire.

Most people with mild symptoms of coronavirus are no longer being tested for Covid-19, with testing limited mainly to hospitals.

This means the actual number of infected people across the region is likely to be far higher, with the Health Secretary warning at least 10,000 people could be infected in the UK.

This is the breakdown of positive coronavirus tests in Yorkshire as of 9am on Monday:

Sheffield - 15

Leeds - 14

Bradford - seven

North Yorkshire - six

York - four

East Riding of Yorkshire - four

Barnsley - four

Wakefield - three

Doncaster - two
