Eight new COVID-19 cases in Lincolnshire, one death

Cumulative two-day totals

There have been eight new cases of coronavirus confirmed in Lincolnshire on Wednesday and one death.

Daily figures released by the government showed the number of cases increased from 3,534 to 3,542 – with seven new cases confirmed in Lincolnshire and one more in North Lincolnshire.

No further cases were confirmed in North East Lincolnshire.

The government’s dashboard did not update yesterday (Tuesday) due to “technical issues” so the figures cover both Tuesday and Wednesday.

The current breakdown is:

  • 2,582 in Lincolnshire (up from 2,575)
  • 740 in North Lincolnshire (up from 739)
  • 220 in North East Lincolnshire (no change)

Today’s NHS figures also showed there had now been no COVID-19 related deaths reported in hospitals for 14 days.

However, government figures for coronavirus deaths increased by one. These figures include deaths outside of hospitals or in hospitals outside the region.

The breakdown of the 466 deaths reported by government is:

  • 323 from Lincolnshire (no change)
  • 107 from North Lincolnshire (up from 106)
  • 36 from North East Lincolnshire (no change)

There have been 69 cases across the Greater Lincolnshire region so far in August.

Nationally, cases rose to 313,798 while deaths increased to 46,706.
