Seven areas of Lancashire have recorded new coronavirus cases, according to Public Health England figures released today (June 16).
A total of eight new cases were confirmed across Lancashire in the last 24 hours – slightly down on the 10 reported yesterday.

No new cases were recorded in Hyndburn, Lancaster, Pendle, Ribble Valley, Rossendale, West Lancashire and Wyre.
There are now 4,896 cases of coronavirus confirmed in Lancashire as a whole, but it is highly likely that cases where no symptoms have been shown are not included in this figure due to limited testing being done.
