Greater Lincolnshire Coronavirus cases near 60,000

The number of COVID-19 cases across the county is nearing 60,000 as further lockdown restrictions are lifted in England.

Though slowing, as of Sunday 11 April a total of 58,634 cases have been reported across Greater Lincolnshire since the pandemic began.

Broken down, Lincolnshire has reported a total of 40,851 cases, North East Lincolnshire has seen 8,571 cases, and North Lincolnshire has witnessed 9,212 cases.

At lower tier local authority level, Boston has recorded a total of 4,866 instances, East Lindsey has seen 6,339, Lincoln has witnessed 6,834, North Kesteven has reported 5,491, South Holland has recorded 5,246, South Kesteven has seen 7,443, and West Lindsey has witnessed 4,632 cases.

The figures come as Coronavirus restrictions are eased in England (on 12 April), allowing the reopening of non-essential retail; personal care premises such as hairdressers, beauty and nail salons; and indoor leisure facilities such as gyms and spas (but not including saunas and steam rooms).

Public buildings such as libraries and community centres will also reopen as well as the majority of outdoor settings and attractions, including outdoor hospitality, zoos, theme parks, drive-in cinemas and drive-in performances events.

Hospitality venues such as pubs and restaurants will be able to open for outdoor service, with no requirement for a substantial meal to be served alongside alcohol, and no curfew. The requirement to eat and drink while seated will remain.
