Coronavirus figures for every area in Lancashire on Monday, June 29
Written by Skywave Radio News on June 29, 2020
Preston is the only area in Lancashire to record new cases of coronavirus in today’s figures from Public Health England.
There were two new cases in Preston with none recorded in all 13 other parts of the county.
The number of confirmed cases dropped in West Lancs by one, most likely due to a recording error.
There are now 4,954 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-19 by borough as of June 29:
- Blackburn with Darwen – 422 (-), 283.3 per 100,000
- Blackpool – 682 (-), 489.6 per 100,000

No new deaths were recorded at hospital trusts operating in Lancashire in today’s daily NHS figures.
It is the fourth time in the last week that no further deaths were reported at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, East Lancashire Hospitals, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust and Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals, and the fifth time this month.
Although any day when no announcement is made is good news, it should be noted that there is regularly a delay in reporting deaths meaning each death is not reported by the NHS on the following day.
Previous weeks have also shown a lag in the recording of deaths after weekends.
