Slowing number of Coronavirus cases picks back up

After the number of new Coronavirus cases in local area seemed to be dropping, with 10 new cases on Monday (18 May) and just 2 new cases on Tuesday (19 May), a further 20 cases were announced yesterday (Wednesday 20 May).

In Lincolnshire the total number COVID-19 cases now stands at 1,061, while in North East Lincolnshire 148 cases have been reported and in North Lincolnshire 493 cases have been confirmed.

This takes the local total to 1,702, representing 32 new cases since the end of last week.

However, this is still lower than some daily increases seen in the past few weeks. Renewing hopes that the spread of the virus is slowing.

Breaking the new figures for 20 May down further, there are now 213 confirmed cases of the virus in Boston, 153 in East Lindsey, 118 in Lincoln, 131 in North Kesteven, 212 in South Holland, 155 in South Kesteven and 79 in West Lindsey.
