Covid 19 Spike in the Maelor
July 27, 2020 at 5:35 pm #190268
All our thoughts are with the staff of the Maelor who daily work on the front line to care and treat those with this awful Covid 19 virus. Would we be in this situation locally if Rowan Food’s parent company had shut the factory down as 2 Sisters did on Anglesey? This problem with food processing factories is arising nationally , maybe for the protection of the wider public , national government will need to step up and force short term closures. Hopefully those with symptoms will get tested and if found positive will isolate and enter the Test and Track system . No one in Wrexham will want to see us in a new lock down situation like Leicester.July 28, 2020 at 9:43 am #190306
Between 60-70 confirmed covid 19 cases in the Maelor. Reports of elderly people catching the disease while in hospital and sadly dying. At what point do they close the hospital to new admissions, as they did in Western Super Mare where they had a similar spike ?July 28, 2020 at 3:49 pm #190329
I find it hard to believe that this is not related to Rowan Foods and some of the workers there.
The numbers have only increased since the outbreak at the food plant.
Unless we can reduce community transmission soon I fear the hospital might close and Wrexham will be heading back into lockdown!

How many beds are in use in the Maelor Hospital allowing for social distancing ? Is between 70-80 being used by covid 19 a high percentage of those in use ?

Easy to try and link to Rowan Foods but was it not two weeks ago that people in England had more freedom – visits to Wales and Wrexham people ‘escaping’ to England.
The real worry is that many people are being infected within the hospital — in for one procedure and then catch Covid.
Would it have been making a difference if the Welsh Government had made wearing masks in hospitals compulsory?
There are just so many people in Wrexham that are not taking things seriously — Covid has NOT gone away it is in our midst and we need to social distance and keep washing our hands.July 29, 2020 at 9:52 am #190379
Does anyone know if routine appointments are still happening?July 29, 2020 at 9:00 pm #190432
Sadly JaneJ a hospital is a breeding ground for viruses such as Covid, Norovirus, Influenza, Hepititas A/B/C and many others.
But you are right, people are not taking it seriously.July 29, 2020 at 9:51 pm #190433
Atherton’s shame has no bounds – she Nimby objected to Wrexham’s Covid testing centres being established back in March in affluent Rossett near where she lives, but is more than happy for the test centres to be dumped in the poorest parts of town instead as we have now seen in Caia and Hightown, which she’s telling everyone to go to. Can’t help but think one in rural North Wrexham would have been helpful.July 29, 2020 at 10:07 pm #190434
As someone who lives in the Atherton “Bubble” area, Matt is correct about the “Nimby” influence in having it moved from Rossett.
The consensus of opinion around Gresford, Marford and Rossett was that “clean” people would not be affected.July 29, 2020 at 10:48 pm #190435
Has someone seen the photo of Ms Atherton turning up at either Caia or Hightown — if not it is bound to be on it’s way.
Open questions to Ms Atherton and her followers:
Do you concede that Westminster dithered and was slow to react when Covid first detected in the UK?
Does Ms Atherton support the way the Welsh Government have reacted by being more cautious in Wales compared with the earlier lifting of lockdown in England that now has increasing cases?
Why did Ms Atheron not step in when the Welsh Government were unable to secure PPE stocks from UK emergency supplies store?
