Covid cases still high across North Lincolnshire


Covid cases still high across North Lincolnshire

Covid cases are still stubbornly high across the North Lincolnshire area as the country moves into colder weather.

Government numbers confirm that in the week between 30 September and 6 October 1261 people confirmed a positive Covid result.

The council are currently urging the public to continue at-home testing to keep a clear picture of Covid cases in the area as well as making sure all those who need to be isolating are doing so.

Tessa Lindfield, North Lincolnshire’s Director of Public Health, said: “North Lincolnshire is doing great in its part at fighting the virus and we want to keep it that way to make sure people are kept safe and well.”

“It’s important that everyone ramps up testing, especially as we get closer to winter, to help reduce the spread and support the NHS. Doing a lateral flow test twice a week and reporting the results doesn’t take long and can make a big difference.”

“Covid-19 is still with us, so we must not get complacent. The rate of infection is just over 700 per 100,000 people in North Lincolnshire. Infection control measures remain important as we continue to protect ourselves and others, including people we care for. This includes maintaining safe social distancing, the wearing of face masks where appropriate, excellent hand hygiene and good ventilation.”

The infection rate in North Lincolnshire currently stands at 749.6 per 100,000, the second-highest in the country.
