These Are The Areas Of Yorkshire That Have Now ‘Suppressed’ COVID-19

As cases across the country finally begin to dwindle after almost two months in lockdown and a year under yo-yo-ing restrictions, a number of areas in Yorkshire have officially ‘suppressed’ the virus – with three or less cases reported in this week’s statistics. The data, which is shown in the government’s new interactive map, expresses the seven-day infection rates for all areas in the UK – with varying rates dependent on the area.

And while most areas are still largely affected by COVID-19, a number of Yorkshire villages have now ‘suppressed’ the virus, providing us with a little bit of hope as the end of lockdown lingers. It is worth noting, however, areas such as Driffield that had suppressed the virus last week have now reported five new cases, bumping up its infection rate into a new colour code.
