UK : First confirmed death of patient with coronavirus

1 Mins read

One patient with underlying health conditions has died after testing positive for coronavirus, the Royal Berkshire NHS Trust said.

It comes as 115 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the UK.

A spokesperson for the Trust said;

“Sadly, we can confirm that an older patient with underlying health conditions has died. The patient has previously been in and out of hospital for non-coronavirus reasons, but on this occasion was admitted and last night tested positive for coronavirus.

The family has been informed and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.

We will not be commenting further and ask that everybody respects the family’s privacy.

Public Health England is contacting anyone who may have come into contact with the affected patient to offer advice.

All services and appointments at the hospital are running normally. The Trust is following established guidelines to minimise the risk of the virus spreading.”
