Woman dies at Queen’s Hospital after contracting Coronavirus

The patient was “very unwell” with other health conditions, according the the hospital

A woman has died at Queen’s Hospital in Romford after testing positive for Coronavirus.

The woman, who was in aged her 60s and lived in Barking and Dagenham, had been “very unwell with significant other health conditions.” 

At this stage, it is not clear at what point and where she contracted the virus.

The interim Chief Executive at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “We can confirm that a patient, who was in her sixties, and who tested positive for COVID-19 has sadly died at Queen’s hospital. She had been very unwell with significant other health conditions. 

“Our thoughts and condolences are with the patient’s family at what is undoubtedly a very distressing time.

“We ask that the family’s privacy is respected.”

The Department of Health has now confirmed there have been 590 cases of Covid-19 across the UK, with 10 deaths across the country.

Prior to today, only one case of coronavirus had been confirmed in Barking and Dagenham, but today that has gone up to three.

There have been no new cases in Havering, where the figure remains at two.

Redbridge still has one and there are no reported cases in Thurrock.
