“My deepest condolences go to the friends and family of this patient. This heart-breaking news should bring it home to every one of us that coronavirus is a real and present danger across our community.


“It is essential that we all follow the public health advice on keeping a safe distance, washing our
hands and staying at home. We all must ensure we reduce our social interactions and we must not make unnecessary visits or take unnecessary journeys.

“We have received concerning reports of a minority of people who are flouting our social distancing advice. These behaviours are putting the people themselves, their families and their
friends and neighbours at risk.


“Coronavirus is a threat across generations and all walks of life. We all need to unite to fight against it.”
