The number of care homes in Lincolnshire tackling coronavirus outbreaks has almost halved according to county health bosses.

In the week ending May 8, the number of care homes placed under protective special measures due to COVID-19 peaked at 22 but now only 12 remain.

The council monitors 270 homes across the county.

Under the measures, those who test positive are isolated away from other residents – often in their own room – in a bid to limit the spread.

Care workers looking after those affected also increase how much personal protective equipment (PPE) they use.

Family and others are also stopped from visiting.

However, there have been three more deaths officially reported in care homes, taking the total to 62.

Yesterday, Lincolnshire was given an extra £10.5 million to help tackle the pandemic in its residential facilities.

A man in his 50s was found with a serious head injury on the university bridge in Lincoln.

Police were called at 11.45pm on Saturday, May 16 to reports a man had been found on the pavement and had been assaulted.

The man was taken to hospital, where he remains with a serious head injury.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesperson said: “We are appealing for anyone who may have seen this man or witnessed what happened to him to contact us.”

Anyone with information should call 101.
