7 parts of East Yorkshire where Covid-19 has almost disappeared

We are nearing the beginning of the end of the coronavirus pandemic with schools all set to reopen on Monday.

While restrictions are slowly beginning to be lifted, case spikes will still flare up based around community transmission, care homes or institutions like prisons.

While South Cave, Newbald and Little Weighton are on the road to recovery after recording the highest infection rate in England just a few weeks ago, Longhill is now the worst affected part of East Yorkshire after a 240 per cent week-on-week increase in cases was recorded in Government figures on Friday.

However, several other areas are at the other end of the scale.

Seven East Riding communities have either eradicated, or all but eradicated coronavirus according to the latest data.

Areas highlighted in white on the Government’s Covid-19 map indicate that fewer than three positive tests have been linked to the area in the seven days to February 28.

The data is unable to reveal the exact number unlike in other worse affected areas in order to protect the identity of individuals.

From the banks of the Humber Estuary to the North Sea coast, these seven parts of the East Riding have managed to wriggle free of the virus – at least for the time being.

These areas are:

  • Cottingham South and North Ella
  • North Ferriby and Swanland
  • Beverley North
  • Cherry Burton, Leconfield and Middleton
  • Skipsea, Beeford and Brandesburton
  • Boulevard and St Andrew’s Quay
  • Stamford Bridge and Sutton upon Derwent

Having a suppressed Covid-19 means that no infection rate is available for these areas. If reported, they would be extremely low or zero.
