Latest Wrexham and Hospital coronavirus figures released
The latest Wrexham, and Wrexham Maelor Hospital coronavirus figures have been released this afternoon.
Wrexham has +10 new confirmed cases on the wider Public Health Wales stats, with 11 in Flintshire out of a total of 37 across Wales as a whole.
Yesterday the Health Board reported 64 cases at the Maelor, however that has declined today to 61, with the fluctuation ‘expected’.
In today’s update Gill Harris, Executive Director of Nursing and Midwifery at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, said: “As of this morning there were 61 confirmed COVID-19 cases at Wrexham Maelor Hospital. We expect this number to fluctuate as test results are received and new patients are admitted to the hospital. There remains a small number of cases at Deeside Community Hospital, Chirk Hospital, and Mold Community Hospital.
The message to avoid the hospital unless necessary was also reiterated, “Please help us to continue to reduce the risk of transmission by only visiting the Wrexham Maelor site if it is absolutely necessary. Supporting vulnerable family or friends, or accessing healthcare services, remain the only reasons anyone other than staff should be accessing the site. Our Patient Advice and Liaison Support Service has a Letters to Loved Ones service in place to help you keep in touch with friends and family in hospital without needing to visit.
“Anybody with concerns about loved ones in our hospitals can contact our Patient Advice and Liaison Support Service on 03000 851 234 or email: BCU.PALS@wales.nhs.uk.
“We urge residents across North Wales, not just in the Wrexham area, to continue to follow the guidance set by Welsh Government and Public Health Wales.
“Signs to look out for include a new continuous cough, high temperature, and a loss of or change in your normal sense of taste or smell.”
The Public Health Wales daily statement says today, ““Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, Wrexham Council and Public Health Wales are working together to provide easy-access testing at two testing centres in Wrexham. If you think you have symptoms – even very mild ones or you’re not sure – please get tested.” However we were told the centres had closed yesterday.
