Hi all, I've been reading this forum for a while now and always meant to sign up. Maybe not the best topic to introduce myself but as someone who works for the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust I thought I'd just make some corrections. I'm not quite sure where you're getting your information from but as of this weekend there were 25 confirmed cases across the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, and yes there have been confirmed deaths. I haven't seen the figures recently so I can't say how much that has risen in the last few days. As you say the hospitals are in fact quiet this week. There are very few visitors and elective surgery is being cancelled. People seem to be staying away from a&e as well. This is the calm before the storm. I agree some of the coverage has caused hysteria but I'm not sure what your point about "some have died showing symptoms of the virus" is. Only those who have tested positive for the virus are counted in the stats so they're not just adding people on who have had symptoms.
