64 new COVID-19 cases in Lincolnshire this month

Greater Lincolnshire has seen no deaths in 15 days

There have been 64 confirmed coronavirus cases in Greater Lincolnshire since the beginning of the month.

The latest government statistics show an extra 12 cases in Lincolnshire and one in North East Lincolnshire for Friday.

North Lincolnshire did not see an increase in today’s figures.

The total 3,404 cases break down as:

  • 2,472 in Lincolnshire (up from 2,461)
  • 724 in North Lincolnshire (no change)
  • 208 in North East Lincolnshire (up from 207)

It means there has been an increase of 21 cases since the beginning of the week.

North Lincolnshire has not seen an increase in its cases since the weekend when it rose by two from 722.

Prior to today, North East Lincolnshire had not seen a rise in nine days, the last increase being from 204 to 207 cases on July 7.

Nationally, the number of cases has risen by 687 to 293,239, while the deaths toll has increased by 114 to 45,233.

Since July 1 there have been an extra 1,556 cases confirmed across Greater Lincolnshire  – mainly due to a large dump of pillar two data (that from testing sites, mobile units and home testing kits) on July 2.

However, breaking down the figures including checking July 2 in isolation on the government’s COVID dashboard shows 64 extra cases.

Lincolnshire today reached 15 days without any new COVID-19 related hospital deaths and three weeks without a death in one of its care homes.

The figures are currently:

  • 141 at United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (no change)
  • 3 at Lincolnshire Community Health Service hospitals (no change)
  • 1 at Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust (no change)
  • 118 in Northern Lincolnshire (NLAG) (no change)
