Welsh Hospital Sees Outbreak, Suspends Surgeries

September 30, 2020

LONDON — Planned surgeries are being suspended at a hospital in Wales following a coronavirus outbreak there.

The Royal Glamorgan Hospital, which is near the Welsh capital city of Cardiff and subject to local virus-related restrictions, says it has identified 82 cases of the virus, some linked to transmission within the hospital.

As a result it has announced some temporary restrictions. Bar a small number of urgent cancer cases, the hospital has decided to suspend planned surgeries beginning Wednesday.

Paul Mears, chief executive of the local health board, said the restrictions have “not been taken lightly, and we understand that they will impact our patients, their families, our staff and partner organisations.”

Large parts of Wales have seen an array of local lockdown restrictions imposed in recent weeks following a spike in new coronavirus cases.
