Seventy-three NHS workers at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London have tested positive for Coronavirus while 318 others have been forced to self-isolate.
Ex-WHO director Anthony Costello confirmed the news on Twitter, saying he had received an email informing him of the outbreak
He said 73 out of 181 staff from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) had tested positive.
‘I received this circular to all staff from Great Ormond St hospital today. 73 out of 181 staff have tested positive and 318 staff members off sick.’
An informant tells me “social distancing in the hospital is a fiction. Whatever the inadequacies of PPE for patient contact my concern is about the use of masks in non-clinical hospital areas. Many team members do handovers in a small office space without the use of masks.
