Residents in a Fife care home have died following 67 positive tests for coronavirus.
The exact number of deaths at Canmore Lodge Care Home in Dunfermline has not been revealed, however the NHS say it is less than five.
A total of 35 residents within the home and 32 staff who work there have tested positive.
NHS Fife confirmed the cluster on Wednesday but couldn’t confirm the number of deaths due to confidentiality reasons.
The health board’s Deputy Director of Public Health, Dr Esther Curnock, said: “We’re saddened by the deaths at Canmore Lodge Care Home and our thoughts are very much with their families’ and loved ones at this really difficult time.
“We are working alongside our colleagues in the Fife Health and Social Care Partnership and Fife Council’s Environmental Health Service to support the managers of the care home to try and prevent further transmission of the virus, and ensure that the standard of care for all residents is maintained.”
