There was also one more coronavirus death recorded over the weekend in Calderdale.

The dashboard shows 368 people had died in the area by October 18 (Monday) – up from 367 on Friday.

The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Calderdale.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

Across England, 79% of people aged 12 and above had received a second dose of the jab.
