New cases of Coronavirus have been found in community hospitals in north east Wales, as well as 61 new cases at the Wrexham Maelor, according to a briefing sent out by the Health Board.
The community hospitals with confirmed cases include Deeside, Mold and Chirk.
Llyr Gruffydd, Plaid Cymru’s North Wales MS, said: “New figures showing Covid-19 being confirmed in three community hospitals in Flintshire and Wrexham are very worrying and come on top of an ongoing rise in Covid-19 cases at the Maelor. Deeside, Mold and Chirk hospitals have all now got confirmed cases on their wards.
“As well as testing all patients – not just the ones on affected wards – it’s also vital that all NHS staff are tested to limit further transmission.Tweet
“Coupled with the rising number of cases in the community in Wrexham, it paints a worrying picture of an infection that isn’t under control in this part of Wales. I have written requesting further urgent clarification from Betsi Cadwaladr on whether they understand why this is a growing problem in the region.”
