Latest Lincolnshire Coronavirus Update

Appointments at new mass vaccination centre to begin on Friday

The UK has recorded 23 coronavirus deaths and 4,654 cases in the latest 24-hour period.

The Government said a further 23 people had died within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19 as of Monday, bringing the UK total to 126,615.

Separate figures published by the UK’s statistics agencies for deaths where Covid-19 has been mentioned on the death certificate, together with additional data on deaths that have occurred in recent days, show there have now been 150,000 deaths involving Covid-19 in the UK.

The Government also said that, as of 9am on Monday, there had been a further 4,654 lab-confirmed cases in the UK.

It brings the total to 4,337,696.

People in Lincolnshire are being warned to stick to social distancing rules for “as long as possible” as Covid-19 restrictions begin to be eased from today.

Two households or groups of up to six people are now able to meet outside as the “stay at home” Covid order comes to an end.

Outdoor sport facilities in England, including tennis courts and golf courses, are reopening and organised outdoor sports can now resume.

Weddings attended by up to six people are also allowed.

But professor Derek Ward, director of public health for Lincolnshire, has warned: “Unless you are living in a household or bubbled up with somebody you must keep to your 2m-plus social distance all the time.”

He added: “I would suggest people keep that going for as long as possible as we come out of lockdown, because that’s how we’ll minimise the risk of passing it on to each other.”
