MEDIA STATEMENT ON CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) DEATHS


Kirsten Major, Chief Executive, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said:

“Sadly, we can confirm that since March 17th 2020, 10 patients being cared for at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals have died after testing positive for COVID-19. The families of these patients have been informed and our thoughts and condolences are with them at this very difficult time.”

We have been asked by some of the families of the patients who have died to respect their privacy and not give any further information about their loved ones. We will therefore only release details of further patients who pass away if their families request us to do so.

We will continue however to provide up to date numbers in line with national announcements by NHS England.
