We are sorry to report that our Ormskirk & Southport NHS Trust hospitals have reported two more coronavirus related deaths. One has occurred on Saturday and the second on Tuesday. We have lost 269 members of our community to this wretched pandemic.
West Lancashire also recorded a spike of 47 new infections, and the cumulative number is now 5,230, that’s 4,575.4 infections per 100,000 of our population.
The new coronavirus strain is associated with symptoms including headache, fatigue, diarrhoea, muscle pain, skipping meals, and confusion. If anyone is suffering from any of these over the coming weeks, stay at home, self isolate and get a test.
