Two wards are closed at Llantrisant Royal Glamorgan Hospital as it battles COVID infections
Royal Glamorgan Hospital that serves the residents of the Welsh Valleys has been forced to close two wards. In an attempt to contain an outbreak of the Coronavirus.
Two wards have been closed at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in Llantrisant after an outbreak of COVID-19 involving 34 cases.
Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board announced on Wednesday, September 23, that it was now taking “robust action”. Following the identification of 34 cases of Covid-19 at the hospital.
A spokeswoman said the infections were linked “mainly” to transmission within the hospital. And that “significant work” was underway to understand and control the outbreak.
The hospital that sits at the bottom of the valleys near the popular towns of Talbot Green & Pontyclun serves the Rhondda Cynon Taff region that is currently under lockdown status.
Later, a nurse from Pontyclun told Global247news this morning of her concerns since the closing of the wards:
“It’s a worrying situation for all. And the fact that 34 cases were reported on the two wards left the hospital administrators with no option but to close the wards down in an attempt to contain the virus”
Also, ” We really need everyone complying with lockdown and taking this very seriously. It’s going to get worse as the winter months approach and we are going to need every bed possible to be able to cope”
