Leeds has recorded the most deaths and new cases of people with coronavirus in Yorkshire.
Recent figures show that another 179 cases and 12 deaths were recorded in the city today (Saturday).
That means just under 56,000 cases have been reported in Leeds since the pandemic began and 869 deaths in city hospitals.
Another 1,100 new Covid-19 cases and 38 deaths were reported across Yorkshire.
It comes as the government has emphasized family reunification and allowing home care visits to occur among their top priorities as reliefs have been eased.

From March 8, every resident of the care home in England will be allowed a regular indoor visitor.
For the first time since the restrictions began, holding hands will be allowed with the required evidence before visitors arrive and PPE must be worn on site.
Boris Johnson is expected to announce the full details of the government’s “roadmap” from the blockade on Monday.
Mr Johnson has previously said that reopening schools would be the first step and urging education unions to choose a phased return of school and college students in classes in England to avoid another increase in Covid-19 infections.
However unions representing staff and principals of the school and college are increasingly concerned that the government may move forward with a full return of all students to England on 8 March.
