Nick Hulme, Chief Executive for East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“We can confirm that five patients, one in their 90s, three in their 80s, and one in their 60s, all of whom had underlying health conditions, have sadly passed away at Ipswich Hospital. One patient in their 70s who had underlying health conditions, has sadly passed away at Colchester Hospital. They had all tested positive for COVID-19.
“Our thoughts and condolences remain with the patients’ families and loved ones at this difficult time.”
