BOSSES at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow have responded to claims that there may have been a Covid-19 outbreak within their hospital.

Last week, YH interviewed the Director of Public Health for Essex, Mike Gogarty regarding the growing number of infections in the town.

He said: “One suggestion has been that there has been an outbreak
within the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) which has involved quite
a lot of staff.”

YH asked PAH if the could shed any light on this?

Sharon McNally, director of nursing, midwifery and allied health professionals at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust, said: “We have robust infection prevention and control measures in place to manage these issues swiftly.

“We continue to follow national guidance.”

We have now submitted further questions to PAH’s media team and await a response.

It is of concern that the government strategy is to use hospitals as centres to administer the vaccine because this will mean that large numbers of people from different areas will congregate and increase the risk of transmission, the administration of a vaccine at this point is unlikely to prevent serious illness particularly in the elderly and vulnerable cohorts bring brought together. Add to that transporting those from care homes is impractical. Better to improve the cold chain to take the vaccine to local GP surgeries and care homes, where this is not possible continue lockdown and await the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine.
