The number of coronavirus cases in South Holland increased by 51 in the last 24 hours, official figures show.
A total of 23,585 cases had been confirmed in South Holland when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on March 4 (Friday), up from 23,534 on Thursday.
The cumulative rate of infection in South Holland, which covers the whole pandemic, stands at 24,604 cases per 100,000 people, far lower than the England average of 28,616.
In England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, if one person tests positive for the virus more than 90 days after the first infection, two infection episodes will be recorded, according to the UK Health Security Agency.
Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 44,485 over the period, to 19,119,181.
There were no new coronavirus deaths recorded in the latest 24-hour period in South Holland.
The dashboard shows 254 people had died in the area by March 4 (Friday) – which was unchanged from Thursday.
It means there have been five deaths in the past week, which is an increase on two the previous week.
They were among 12,891 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 nearly two-thirds of people in South Holland have received a booster dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The latest figures show 56,554 people had received a booster or third dose by March 3 (Thursday) – 64% of those aged 12 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.
A total of 69,439 people (79%) had received two jabs by that date.
Across England, 66% of people aged 12 and above had received a booster.
Unlike at local level, the national rate was calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
Around 11,000 historical vaccinations carried out across England in 2021 have been included in today's figures.
They were previously uncounted due to a technical issue, the UKHSA said.
