Written by Skywave Radio News on June 26, 2020
Seven new cases of coronavirus were confirmed in today’s Lancashire figures from Public Health England.
It is the biggest daily rise in new cases so far this week and comes 24 hours after just one new cases was recorded.
Pendle recorded the most with two new cases while Blackpool, Chorley, Lancaster, Preston and West Lancs each recorded one new case.
No new cases were confirmed in Blackburn with Darwen, Burnley, Fylde, Hyndburn, Ribble Valley, Rossendale, South Ribble and Wyre.
There are now 4,946 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.
