COVID cases in Lincolnshire continue to rise as more Omicron cases are reported in the UK
As more Omicron cases are reported in the UK, COVID cases in Greater Lincolnshire continue to rise.
Although the Government have brought in more restrictions, many experts believe the Government are not doing enough. That has been echoed by many of those living in Lincolnshire.
We hit the streets of Grimsby, Boston, Gainsborough, Scunthorpe, and Skegness to find out if the Government are doing enough to bring down the COVID cases in the UK.
More than half of those we spoke to feel the Government were not working fast enough and more action should be in-force.
Some of those we spoken to believe a one-week lockdown should have been brought in place at the beginning of December.
One thing that most of the people we spoken to agreed with, was that Boris Johnson and his MPs were all giving out confusing mixed messages.
