COVID-19 - Confirmation of patient deaths

Last updated 24/02/2021


“Sadly, we can confirm that 1,365 patients being cared for at our hospitals, and who had tested positive for COVID-19, have died.

"68 of those deaths have been announced since last Wednesday (24 February).  The ages of the patients ranged between those in their 20s to those in their 90s.

"Our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends of the patients at this very difficult and distressing time."
