Sadly, we can confirm that a man in his early 80s being cared for at Milton Keynes University Hospital has died.
The man, who had underlying health conditions, tested positive for coronavirus shortly before his death on Thursday, March 5.
His family has been informed and our thoughts and condolences are with them at what is undoubtedly a difficult and distressing time.
The hospital continues to work with Public Health England to isolate any patients or staff who had contact with the patient.
All services and appointments at the hospital are running normally. The Trust is following established guidelines to minimise the risk of the virus spreading.
We will not be commenting further and ask that the family’s privacy is respected.
