Covid cases continue to rise in Lincolnshire with 54 Covid Patients in United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT) hospitals
In the past week Lincolnshire has recorded 4,000 Covid cases, showing the pandemic in Boston and the rest of the county is nowhere near over.
The United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT), today announced there are 54 Covid patients in their hospitals.
The cases in Lincolnshire echoes what is happening around the country with the Government announcing a 20% increase of Covid cases. In the UK 36,000 new infections are recorded.
The hospital trust which runs facilities in Lincoln, Boston, Grantham and Louth, has said with the rising Covid cases they have put emergency plans together for the winter
The emergency plans for winter if Covid cases increase include changes making “changes in capacity” if demand increases.
A ULHT spokesperson said that these risk ratings were “frequently changing” and that the trust will not be publishing a list of them, instead asking those wishing to visit to use the booking system in place which will have the latest information.
The Government are hoping the new Covid Booster jabs will help reduce the number of Covid cases over winter. However, many doctors and scientists believe that with the reduction in travel guidelines, and the rising cases, we could be heading for a third lockdown.
