Infected patients are still being cared for at the hospital, but the number of people dying after having tested positive for the virus has NOT increased.

The Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust have confirmed that there have been no deaths from Coronavirus for six consecutive days at Salisbury District Hospital. 

The latest patient to have passed, having tested positive for the virus, was on Thursday 30th April

The death toll at the trust remains at 48.


Department of Health and Social Care have announced that there have been a further 649 deaths in the UK.

This brings the total number of patients that have died to 30,076.


The number of confirmed cases, as of 5:09pm yesterday (5th May), in Wiltshire stands at 849.

This is made up as follows,

  • Wiltshire Council area - 465
  • Swindon Borough Council - 384

The number of confirmed case in Hampshire now stands at 3,865.

Those figures are made up as follows,

  • Hampshire County Council - 2,915
  • Southampton City Council - 509
  • Portsmouth City Council - 296
  • Isle of Wight Council - 145

The number of cases reported for each Upper Tier Local Authority may fluctuate as the figures are revised by Public Health England.

They may be changed due to multiple tests being carried out for one person being listed separately, for instance.
