Alex comments on the 3 confirmed Covid-19 cases

Alex said:

I am deeply saddened to hear that a person from our area has died after contracting coronavirus, and send my sincere sympathies to their loved ones as well as to others who are now confirmed to have contracted Covid-19.

This a worrying time for everybody and I want to reiterate the advice that we have been given by medical experts which is to self-isolate if you or anyone in your household is exhibiting the symptoms of coronavirus, or are in an “at risk” category. It is through these measures that we can hope to contain and reduce the spread of Covid-19 – and support our hard working NHS and social care workers who are working round the clock to combat the disease and keep people safe.
