Sadly we can confirm a man who had been cared for at Salisbury Hospital and passed away on 11 March 2020 has been confirmed as the first person to pass away due to COVID-19 in Wiltshire. The patient in his 50s had underlying health conditions.
Please find attached a copy of the statement issue to the press and posted to the Wiltshire Council website this afternoon.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
