BRADFORD Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is still treating the highest number of patients with Covid-19 in the county - but that number is dropping. 

Latest figures, released every Thursday, by the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership show there is currently a combined total of 69 patients who have tested positive for Covid-19 receiving care in hospitals across West Yorkshire and Harrogate, with nine patients requiring intensive care.

That's a fall from 78 last week, however, the number of patients requiring intensive care has remained the same.

Last week, Bradford Teaching Hospitals was treating 35 patients with Covid-19. That number has now dropped to 27.

Airedale's figure has stayed the same at one - the lowest in the area.
