The number of coronavirus cases in Boston increased by 30 in the last 24 hours, official figures show.
A total of 6,882 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in Boston when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on August 19 (Thursday), up from 6,852 on Wednesday.
The rate of infection in Boston now stands at 9,715 cases per 100,000 people, lower than the England average of 9,866.
Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 36,273 over the period, to 6,392,160.
However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded in the latest 24-hour period in Boston.
The dashboard shows 178 people had died in the area by August 19 (Thursday) – which was unchanged from Wednesday.
It means there has been one death in the past week, which is an increase on none the previous week.
They were among 10,383 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.
The figures also show that nearly two-thirds of people in Boston have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The latest figures show 40,557 people had received both jabs by August 18 (Wednesday) – 62% of those aged 18 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
Across England, 75% of people aged 16 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.
