Harrogate District Hospital is still treating a record amount of covid patients.

Figures from North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group today revealed that 65 people are in hospital with covid.

The number is among the highest since the start of the pandemic.

Last month the hospital urged people to follow lockdown rules and stay at home as its covid wards were “exceptionally busy”. But numbers have remained stubbornly high since.

It comes as a further 27 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the Harrogate District, according to today’s Public Health England statistics.
