Data shows the areas of Yorkshire where Covid-19 infections are falling

Yorkshire has now been in lockdown for more than two months – but are coronavirus cases falling everywhere?

There are 692 neighbourhoods across the region's 21 local authorities, including North and North East Lincolnshire.

Data shows that Covid-19 infections dropped in 283 of these in the seven days up to March 11, according to the JPIMedia Data Unit's analysis of the Government's Covid-19 statistics – meaning 41 per cent of all of the region's neighbourhoods saw cases fall.

The latest, third lockdown began on January 5 and data shows most council areas are seeing a divide in neighbourhoods where cases are falling and rising.
