Tuesday saw a 14 day streak without coronavirus-related deaths brought to an end with two local fatalities - one at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) and one at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust (NLAG).
As it stands, there have been 141 deaths at ULHT hospitals and 116 at NLAG hospitals.
Tuesday’s deaths were the first reported rise since June 8.
However, health bosses say the last time the figure increased on their system was on May 29 – another 10 days prior.
The NHS figures often include deaths from earlier dates that have just been confirmed as coronavirus related.
