Coronavirus figures for every area in Lancashire on Wednesday, July 1
Written by Skywave Radio News on July 1, 2020
Eight new cases of coronavirus were confirmed across six areas of Lancashire in today’s figures from Public Health England.
There were two new cases in both Blackburn-with-Darwen and Preston.
Blackpool, Chorley, South Ribble and West Lancs also recorded one new case each.
It is one of the biggest daily rises in recent days.
There were no changes in eight other parts of the county.
There are now 4,965 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 July 1:
- Blackburn with Darwen – 424 (+2), 284.7 per 100,000

No further deaths were confirmed in Lancashire’s hospitals today.
The UK’s official coronavirus death toll has risen by 176 to a total of 43,906.
It is a week-on-week rise compared to last Wednesday where in the previous 24 hours 154 deaths were recorded.
Death figures remain stubbornly high with experts fearing the ‘long tail’ of Covid-19.
The Department of Health and Social Care also reported a further 829 infections, taking that total to more than 313,000.
This is also higher than the 653 cases recorded last Wednesday.
The number of tests recorded in the last 24 hours was 226,398 – although once again the government was unable to confirm how many people were tested.
The increase in both figures comes as England prepares to radically ease lockdown restrictions on Saturday.
