First COVID-19 death in Yeovil
We are sorry to have to report the first death from COVID-19 in Yeovil Hospital. This follows the deaths of 3 patients in Musgrove Hospital (Taunton) last week.
We understand the patient was a man in his 80’s with underlying health conditions. In a statement a Yeovil Hospital Foundation Trust spokesperson told us“Sadly, we can confirm that a patient who had been cared for at Yeovil Hospital and who had tested positive for COVID-19, died at the hospital this week.”
Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family. For obvious reasons we will not be looking to get further details or to intrude on them in this distressing time.
