Nick Hulme, Chief Executive for East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“We can confirm that two patients, one in their 80s and one in their 70s, who both had underlying health conditions, have sadly passed away at Ipswich Hospital. Five patients, one in their 90s, three in their 80s and one in their 40s, all of whom had underlying health conditions, have 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.”
