As of 10am today (Monday, January 17), the Royal is treating 73 patients with a positive diagnosis of the virus.
A total of 74 patients have been admitted with a positive diagnosis in the past week.
And the hospital trust says 52 Covid patients have been discharged over the same seven-day period.
A Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundtion Trust spokesperson said in a Facebook post: “Colleagues do a fantastic job every day to provide excellent care to all of our patients, including those with a positive diagnosis of Covid-19.
“Safety is a top priority and we’d like to thank everybody working in or visiting the hospital for continuing to follow all the guidance.”
The UK recorded 70,924 daily Covid cases on Sunday – the lowest figure since December 14 – amid reports that current restrictions could soon be eased.
