THE Western Trust has paid tribute to its Intensive Care Unit (ICU) staff at Altnagelvin Hospital who today have discharged the last of patients being treated for coronavirus.
In a post on social media accompanied by images of ICU staff, the Trust confirmed the milestone.
It said: "Well done to our fantastic team in ICU Altnagelvin Hospital on discharging the last of all COVID-19 patients; all of whom are now 100% recovered."
The hugely positive news comes as the NI Executive confirmed the next phase of the COVID-19 public information campaign.
The campaign urges citizens to follow the advice to ‘Stay Safe; Save Lives’ and ‘Work Safe; Save Lives’.
Messaging will encourage the public to: stay at home as much as possible to stop the spread of the virus; limit contact with others; keep your distance if going out; wash your hands well and often; work from home where possible.
