Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust is currently treating patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus). Sadly, we can confirm that two patients being cared for at Loughborough Hospital, and who had tested positive for COVID-19, have died.
The patients were both women. One was in her eighties, and the other in her fifties. Both patients had underlying health conditions.
The deaths bring the total for Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust to four COVID-19-related deaths.
Our thoughts and condolences are with the families and friends of those patients at this very difficult and distressing time.
- The Trust will not be giving out any further information on these patients.
- The media are asked to respect the wishes of the family / families, and the interests of staff at the hospital to avoid any disruption to operational services.
