There have been two new coronavirus-related deaths reported across Greater Lincolnshire hospitals on July 2.

  • 1 at Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust
  • 118 in Northern Lincolnshire and Goole (up from 117)

Nationally, a further 35 people who tested positive for the Coronavirus have died in hospitals in England bringing the total to 28,794.

Yesterday (Wednesday) saw no further deaths reported in Greater Lincolnshire Hospitals and this week so far has seen two further deaths in total.

Updated case numbers will be released later today, however, according to government figures for Wednesday the total for Lincolnshire remained unchanged at 1,158.

North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire numbers stayed steady at 524 and 166 respectively.

It means the total for the Greater Lincolnshire is 1,848.

However, the figures are expected to rise “significantly” as “community testing” data from Lincolnshire Showground, mobile testing units and home test kits is filtered down to local authorities.

Health bosses have been calling for the data for weeks but have only recently received it and are still going through the numbers.
