There were 1,269 new coronavirus cases in Greater Lincolnshire over the weekend.
The government’s COVID-19 dashboard on Sunday evening showed 797 new cases in Lincolnshire, 253 in North Lincolnshire and 219 in North East Lincolnshire.
The government’s figures also showed 22 new deaths including 17 residents in Lincolnshire, one in North Lincolnshire and four in North East Lincolnshire.
The figures include deaths both in and out of hospitals and those of residents in hospitals outside the county.
This brings the total cases in November so far to 5,745. October saw 7,132 for the whole month.
NHS England also reported 18 new deaths over the weekend, with seven at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust and 11 at United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust.
Some 600 people in our region have now died within 28 days of testing positive for coronavirus.
Two of Lincolnshire’s hospitals are currently in the middle of a “critical incident” due to “critically low staffing levels,” so they’re struggling to meet rising numbers of COVID-positive patients.
Nationally, cases increased to 1,369,318, while deaths rose to 51,934.
The weekend also saw Prime Minister Boris Johnson self-isolate after being in contact with an MP who later tested positive for coronavirus.
A new major vaccine trial was also launched on Monday, the third in the UK.
