132 coronavirus cases in Greater Lincolnshire this week

But no COVID-19 deaths

There have been 132 cases of coronavirus confirmed in Greater Lincolnshire this week.

Government data showed 29 cases of COVID-19 confirmed on Friday, with 24  in Lincolnshire, three in North Lincolnshire, and two in North East Lincolnshire.

It means there have been 324 cases of coronavirus confirmed in Greater Lincolnshire so far in September.

Earlier today health bosses in Lincolnshire confirmed the virus would be a part of the new normal in schools until spring.

They also revealed 10,000 tests had been carried out in the county last week, despite issues with capacity and booking.

But a local lockdown was considered unlikely as restrictions were tightened in other areas of the country.

Nationally, cases increased by 4,322 to 385,936 cases on Thursday, while deaths increased by 27 to 41,732.

There were no further hospital deaths confirmed for the Greater Lincolnshire regions in NHS figures or the government’s own tally, which also includes deaths outside of hospitals or outside the county.
