Guernsey Health Officials concerned about rising Covid cases

  • ITV Channel Presenter Jonathan Wills speaking to Dr Nicola Brink about the concerns

Health officials in Guernsey are worried the rise in Covid cases on island is because symptomatic people are not following health advice.

As the temperatures drops, health officials are urging people to live responsibly and maintain good practices in order to live with the virus.

In recent days the island has seen an increase in cases and two people have been admitted to hospital.

Dr Nicola Brink, Guernsey's Medical Director of Health is urging islanders to maintain good Covid-19 health measures particularly as winter approaches.

Health officials are concerned people who are symptomatic are not reporting their symptoms and instead continuing as normal and subsequently transmitting the virus in the community.
