The number of coronavirus cases in South Holland increased by 43 in the last 24 hours, official figures show.
A total of 7,243 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in South Holland when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on August 26 (Thursday), up from 7,200 on Wednesday.
The rate of infection in South Holland now stands at 7,556 cases per 100,000 people, far lower than the England average of 10,193.
Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 37,962 over the period, to 6,628,709.
However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded in the latest 24-hour period in South Holland.
The dashboard shows 199 people had died in the area by August 26 (Thursday) – which was unchanged from Wednesday.
It means there have been no deaths in the past week, which is a decrease on three the previous week.
They were among 10,446 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 South Holland.
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 three-quarters of people in South Holland have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The latest figures show 61,245 people had received both jabs by August 25 (Wednesday) – 75% of those aged 18 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
Across England, 77% 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.
