110 further coronavirus cases in Boston
The number of coronavirus cases in Boston increased by 110 over the weekend, official figures show.
A total of 6,587 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in Boston when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on August 9 (Monday), up from 6,477 on Friday.
The rate of infection in Boston now stands at 9,299 cases per 100,000 people, lower than the England average of 9,415.
Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 80,220 over the period, to 6,094,243.
However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded over the weekend in Boston.
The dashboard shows 177 people had died in the area by August 9 (Monday) – which was unchanged from Friday.
It means there have been no deaths in the past week, which is a decrease on one the previous week.
They were among 10,306 deaths recorded across the East Midlands.
The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Boston.
Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.
Figures reported on a Monday are likely to be lower as a result of a lag in reporting deaths over the weekend.
The figures also show that three in five people in Boston have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The latest figures show 38,967 people had received both jabs by August 8 (Sunday) – 59% of those aged 18 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
Across England, 74% of people aged 18 and above had received a second dose of the jab.
Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
