Coronavirus figures for every area in Lancashire on Thursday, June 18

Written by on June 18, 2020

Ten areas of Lancashire have recorded no new coronavirus cases, according to Public Health England figures released today (June 18).

A total of five new cases were confirmed across Lancashire in the last 24 hours – down on the six reported yesterday and one of the lowest increases this month

Fylde posted the biggest rise with two cases while three other parts of the county each rose by one.

No new cases were recorded in Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool, Chorley, Hyndburn, Pendle, Ribble Valley, Rossendale, South Ribble, West Lancashire and Wyre.

There are now 4,907 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.

Confirmed cases of Covid-19by borough as of June 18:

  • Blackburn with Darwen – 422 (-), 283.3 per 100,000
  • Blackpool – 677 (-), 486 per 100,000
  • Burnley – 199 (+1), 224.8 per 100,000
  • Chorley – 361 (-), 309 per 100,000
  • Fylde – 282 (+2), 353.5 per 100,000
  • Hyndburn – 157 (-), 194.3 per 100,000
  • Lancaster – 807 (+1), 559.5 per 100,000
  • Pendle – 195 (-), 213.3 per 100,000
  • Preston – 478 (+1), 337.1 per 100,000
  • Ribble Valley – 106 (-), 176.5 per 100,000

  • South Ribble – 276 (-), 249.7 per 100,000
  • West Lancs – 387 (-), 339.6 per 100,000
  • Wyre – 383 (-), 344.4 per 100,000

Two more coronavirus deaths were recorded across Lancashire hospital trusts, according to today’s NHS figures.

Both patients died at East Lancashire Hospitals. One patient died on June 12 and one died on June 16

No deaths were recorded Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, which manages Preston and Chorley hospitals, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals and Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals.

It brings the Lancashire hospitals death toll to 959.

The figures which are released each day often include previously uncounted deaths that took place several days or even weeks ago.

This is because of the time it takes for deaths to be confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19, for post-mortem examinations to be processed, and for data from the tests to be validated.
