Meanwhile, the total in Lancashire – including Blackpool and Blackburn – stands at 4,848.
The figures are based on the positive results of the Covid-19 test and include patients who have since recovered or died.
However, most people who self-isolate are not tested for coronavirus, so the total number of people who fall ill is likely to be considerably higher.
How many cases of coronavirus are there in Lancashire?
