Denbighshire County Council says in its latest update on Coronavirus at Llangollen Fechan Care Home that there has been one further death, taking taking the total since the beginning of this incident to 21.
The statement adds: "There have been no new positive coronavirus tests amongst residents and two
members of staff, resulting in a total of 60 residents and 42 staff.
"These organisations are still working together with the owners of the home
to co-ordinate the response. It will take time for the impact of this work to
bring this incident fully under control.
"Co-chair of the IMT, Nicola Stubbins, said: “Control measure are starting
to have an impact with numbers of infections and deaths reducing. Even so we are
still very sad to report this additional death, and to report that there are
still residents who are very unwell.
“It is still the case that residents in Llangollen Fechan and other
settings, already vulnerable through their age or pre-existing conditions, are
more likely to suffer the worst outcomes from this deadly virus. Our thoughts
continue to be with all of those affected.
“We expect to see cases in other settings going forward, and we manage any
clusters of Coronavirus consistently.
“Anyone who meets the definition of a contact will be contacted as a
routine part of the Test, Trace and Protect process and provided with
additional advice for themselves, their household and other contacts.
“We remind the public that they have a vital role in preventing the spread
of Coronavirus. They can do this by adhering to Welsh Government
regulations currently in place in Wales, and by observing social distancing
guidelines – that’s staying two metres away from others – and washing hands
