258 new Coronavirus cases reported locally last week

The number of new cases of COVID-19 across Greater Lincolnshire jumped by 258 last week, beating out the previous week’s total reported cases by over 100.

Between Monday 21 and Sunday 27 September, Lincolnshire saw 160 cases reported, North East Lincolnshire saw 41, and North Lincolnshire saw 57.

This takes the total number of cases locally to 4,445.

Looking closer at Lincolnshire’s lower tier local authorities, Boston has now reported 529 cases (up 8 cases last week), East Lindsey has seen 326 cases (up 18 cases), Lincoln has recorded 459 cases (up 48 cases), North Kesteven has reported 340 cases (up 32 cases), South Holland has seen 749 cases (up 9 cases), South Kesteven has recorded 545 cases (up 21 cases), and West Lindsey has reported 257 cases (up 24 cases).

The figures come after the launch of the new NHS COVID-19 app last week. The app forms a central part of the NHS Test and Trace service in England – identifying contacts of those who have tested positive for coronavirus. On Sunday 27 September at 12pm, there had been over 10 million downloads across compatible Google and Apple devices in England and Wales.
