New COVID-19 figures released on Thursday (2 July) have shown the number of cases in the county to be almost double those previously reported by the government.
The surge comes as new testing figures were added to the government’s daily case update to include not just hospital and health care testing data (pillar one data) but that from mobile testing sites, home testing and fixed testing sites (pillar two data).
With the addition of the new data, the total number of COVID-19 cases in Lincolnshire now stands at 3,328 – 2,410 in Lincolnshire, 203 in North East Lincolnshire, and 715 in North Lincolnshire. This represents an increase in 1,480 cases on data from July 1.
Looking at lower tier local authority level, 483 cases have now been reported in Boston, 233 in East Lindsey, 251 in Lincoln, 213 in North Kesteven, 695 in South Holland, 392 in South Kesteven and 143 in West Lindsey.
