Eight new COVID-19 cases in Lincolnshire on Tuesday

118 cases in the region so far in August

There have been eight confirmed cases of coronavirus in Greater Lincolnshire on Tuesday.

The latest government figures show five new COVID-19 positive cases in Lincolnshire, one in North East Lincolnshire and two in North Lincolnshire.

Hospital data also confirmed no further deaths in their latest figures, meaning 19 days without fatalities.

The current breakdown of the region’s 3,591 cumulative cases is:

  • 2,617 in Lincolnshire (up from 2,612)
  • 744 in North Lincolnshire (up from 742)
  • 230 in North East Lincolnshire (up from 229)

There have been 118 cases in the region so far in August.

Nationally, government data showed cases increased Tuesday by 1,089 to 320,286 and deaths rose by 12 to 41,381.

Since an urgent review of how deaths were recorded last week cut more than 5,000 from the data, local figures have been removed from the government dashboard.

It means the changes have not been reflected in local figures.

National death figures had returned to the dashboard at the time of publication, however, regional figures still had not appeared.
