Public Health England figures show that 55,142 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 by 9am on Wednesday (April 14) in Nottinghamshire up from 55,121 the same time on Tuesday.

The health body recently changed the way it records the figures.

Cases identified through a positive lateral flow test – those which can deliver results within half an hour – will no longer be counted if the person then takes a PCR test, which is sent to a lab to be checked, and receives a negative result within three days.
