An 84-year old female patient, who had tested positive for Covid-19 and also had underlying health conditions, has died at Hinckley and Bosworth Hospital.

Her passing follows the Covid-19 related deaths of three patients at the hospital last month.

A spokesperson for Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust said: “We have shared our deep condolences with her family and our thoughts remain with them at this distressing time.”
