Nine areas of Lancashire have recorded no new coronavirus cases, according to Public Health England figures released today (June 17).
A total of six new cases were confirmed across Lancashire in the last 24 hours – down on the 10 reported yesterday and one of the lowest increases this month

No new cases were recorded in Blackpool, Burnley, Chorley, Lancaster, Pendle, Preston, Ribble Valley, Rossendale and West Lancashire.
