11 days in a row with no Lincolnshire COVID-19 deaths

Nearly two weeks without Coronavirus deaths

Official figures show there have now been 11 consecutive days without any additional COVID-19 deaths reported in Lincolnshire’s hospitals.

Friday’s government statistics show that the county’s hospital deaths remained at 140.

There were also no deaths in Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals Trust, leaving that figure at 115.

The total number of coronavirus related deaths in Greater Lincolnshire stands at 326.

Prior to the numbers being released, assistant director of public health at Lincolnshire County Council, Tony McGinty said the length of time without deaths or cases had been “incredibly positive”.

He said he hoped people could “pick up the baton” and make it to two whole weeks this weekend.

Nationally, a further 46 people who tested positive for the coronavirus have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 28,221.
