The latest victims died at St Mary’s Hospital in Newport on Thursday (9th April), taking the death toll from 8 to 10.
The Isle of Wight NHS Trust has not yet issued a statement confirming the ages of those who have died, which it would normally do.
Official figures from Public Health England show that there are a total of 53 confirmed cases of coronavirus on the Isle of Wight as of 12th April.
As of Thursday, 9 people admitted to St Mary’s Hospital to have tested positive for COVID-19 have recovered and been discharged.
Nationally, the number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 stands at over 84,000. There have been at least 10,612 deaths across the country.
The British Army has been brought in to help reconfigure St Mary’s Hospital to create an additional 200 beds. Meanwhile, 4 refrigerated containers have brought over to act as a temporary mortuary, should the need arise. However, the number of new cases on the Island is not skyrocketing as could have been expected.
