- Unfortunately, a person in one of our retirement homes has died and has been found to be infected with the coronavirus. We are sad about what has happened. Our thoughts go to the relatives, says Camilla Gärdebring, the municipality’s Head of Social Care.

She cannot comment on whether the coronavirus was the cause of death.


- No, we don't know that. We are not the ones who determine the cause of death.

Have you taken any special measures after being notified?

- No, we’re constantly working with our basic hygiene procedures and follow all of the recommendations.

The average age in the municipality's retirement homes is 86 years old.

A total of 32 covid-patients are being treated in Skåne hospitals. Four of them are in intensive care.
