Coronavirus cases on the decline in North Lincolnshire
Coronavirus cases are steadily declining in North Lincolnshire, with the Covid case rate currently standing at 778 cases per 100,000 people.
In the seven days from Friday 4 to Thursday 10 February, North Lincolnshire Covid cases fell with 1,011 people confirmed to have a positive Covid-19 test, a considerable decrease of -72 percent compared to the previous seven days.
The Government continues to urge people to receive their booster vaccines to prevent coronavirus cases from rising again once all restrictions end within the month.
Government data shows that, by the end of Wednesday 9 February, 131,895 people in North Lincolnshire had been given their first dose of the vaccine, 124,203 people had been given their second dose and 99,405 people had been given their third.
The news comes after North Lincolnshire won national praise for their vaccine programme, which helped vunerable patients receive their jabs when they could not make it to GPs or vaccination centres.
With coronavirus cases falling, between Monday 31 January and Sunday 6 February, only 49 people were admitted into a local hospital, a decrease of -30 percent compared to the previous seven days.
The total amount of patients currently in Northern Lincolnshire and Goole hospitals with coronavirus now stands at 86 (as of Tuesday 8 February).
However, recent reports have claimed that more than half of Covid patients in England’s hospitals are primarily being treated for a different condition.
Reports suggest that the unvaccinated are eight times more likely to be admitted into hospital compared to those who have been vaccinated.
Figures from the Office for National Statistics also indicate that double-vaccinated individuals have less of a chance of catching long Covid – a decrease of 41.1 percent.
Nevertheless, over the last seven days, there have only been three more deaths in North Lincolnshire within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test.
