NUMBER OF COVID-19 CASES RISES TO FOUR IN SALFORD


There has been a rise of 3 more cases in Salford since last reports, which now brings the cities tally to 4 which have been confirmed by Public Health England, however, it is expected that there are far more infections throughout the city which have not been reported or confirmed as yet.

At present there have been 1,950 cases which have been confirmed across England which include 65 from which people have recovered fully from and 71 cases which have proven to be fatal, 14 of those deaths have been reported over the past 24 hours.

The numbers are expected to rise even higher over the coming weeks as the virus tightens its grip and people start to exhibit symptoms.

The current advice from the government is as follows.

If you have coronavirus symptoms: 

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.

Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household.

Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home.

Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser.

If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.

If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
