There are many more treatments available to help with coronavirus symptoms outside the ICU, including medication and access to oxygen therapy.

This news comes before the update of Boris Johnson coronavirus, which will determine the plan for England when it comes out of the national lock on December 2

A stricter three-tier system is expected to be implemented, which will see shops and gyms reopen on all three levels, but pubs and restaurants will remain closed to any Category 3 area.

It is highly unlikely that North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and East Lindsey will be placed in Category 3 as cases continue to rise in the area.

According to current NHS and government data, North East Lincolnshire is currently the sixth worst country in the country, with 414 cases per 100,000 population. North Lincolnshire is currently eleventh with 382 cases per 100,000 population.

However, East Lindsey has seen an increase in cases this month, and is currently the third worst low-level local authority in England, with a case rate of 557 cases per 100,000 population.
