9 new cases of COVID-19 in Lincolnshire reported in a day

Following two consecutive weeks in which just nine new cases of COVID-19 were reported locally, figures revealed on Tuesday (30 June) show a jump of nine cases in just one day.

While numbers posted by the Government on Monday indicated 1,839 local total cases of Coronavirus (1,149 in Lincolnshire, 166 in North East Lincolnshire, and 524 in North Lincolnshire), Tuesday’s figures show 1,848 total cases (1,158 in Lincolnshire, 166 in North East Lincolnshire, and 524 in North Lincolnshire).

Looking into these cases at lower tier local authority level, the numbers indicate that there have now been a total of 233 cases in Boston (which has been the case since 23 June), 167 cases in East Lindsey (an increase in two cases between Monday and Tuesday), 126 cases in Lincoln (which has been the case since 26 June), 137 cases in North Kesteven (an increase of one case between Monday and Tuesday), 236 cases in South Holland (an increase of two cases between Monday and Tuesday), 173 cases in South Kesteven (an increase in three cases between Monday and Tuesday), and 86 cases in West Lindsey (an increase of one case between Monday and Tuesday).

The news comes ahead of further relaxations of lockdown set for 4 July (this Saturday), where a new one meter plus rule will come into force, and restaurants, pubs, cafes, museums, galleries, cinemas, hairdressers and holiday accommodation amongst other venues and facilities will be allowed to reopen.
