Teresa Cope, Chief Operating Officer for Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust says:
“The second wave of the coronavirus pandemic has affected our region much more severely than the first, and we are seeing the results of this in both our COVID-related hospital admissions and the number of people dying locally with the virus.
“Behind every death are scores of family and friends left devastated by their loss, and a team of outstanding healthcare workers who will have done their utmost to care for that individual and keep them comfortable until the very end. Our thoughts and our condolences go out to everyone suffering the consequences of this dreadful disease.
“COVID-19 remains a very real danger in Hull and the East Riding. Please help us limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep our whole community safe by following the guidance, including Hands-Face-Space.”
