Ten people have died after contracting coronavirus (Covid-19) following an outbreak at a care home.
NHS Fife said 25 residents and 43 staff tested positive for the virus at Mossview Care Home in the town of Lochgelly.
The care home was closed to new admissions but has since reopened as it’s now 14 days since the last positive test.
The health board said its health protection team and Fife Health and Social Care Partnership worked closely with Fife Council’s environmental health service to support the management of the care home and offer advice.
NHS Fife said:
NHS Fife is aware of a recent cluster of confirmed Covid-19 cases associated with Mossview Care Home in Lochgelly.
A total of 25 residents tested positive for the virus. A further 43 staff have also tested positive for Covid-19.
Sadly, 10 people died after contracting Covid-19 and our thoughts are with their loved ones at this difficult time.
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
