Child under 10 among Covid hospital cases during lockdown

Forty four admitted to Noble's within 21 days of testing positive for coronavirus

A child under the age of 10 was admitted to hospital after testing positive for coronavirus during the recent lockdown.

There were a total of 44 admissions to Noble's involving people who'd had a positive Covid test 21 days before requiring hospital treatment.

One fell in the youngest age group, for those between zero and nine years of age, while one was in the 90+ category.

The 60 to 69 group saw the most admissions, with 14 requiring treatment during the 47-day period.

Fifty-one were treated in Noble's during the first lockdown in 2020, while just one was admitted during the circuit breaker earlier this year.
