OVER 50 coronavirus cases remain at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, latest health board figures show.

Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board has confirmed that as of Wednesday morning there have been no new cases in the last day, with the total currently at 56 cases at the hospital.

This is as well as "small number" at Deeside Community Hospital, Chirk Hospital, and Mold Community Hospital.

Gill Harris, executive director of Nursing and Midwifery at Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board, said: "Please help us to continue to reduce the risk of transmission by only visiting the Wrexham Maelor site if it is absolutely necessary. Supporting vulnerable family or friends, or accessing healthcare services, remain the only reasons anyone other than staff should be accessing the site.

“Our Patient Advice and Liaison Support Service has a Letters to Loved Ones service in place to help you keep in touch with friends and family in hospital without needing to visit.

“We urge residents across North Wales, not just in the Wrexham area, to continue to follow the guidance set by Welsh Government and Public Health Wales.

“Signs to look out for include a new continuous cough, high temperature, and a loss of or change in your normal sense of taste or smell."
