All hospital visits in Gwent have now been suspended as the health board tries to “reduce the spread” of coronavirus.
The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board covering Newport, Torfaen, Caerphilly, Blaenau Gwent and Monmouthshire said it was introducing the measures following the Government’s “partial lockdown“.
Only birth partners for a maternity, a nominated parent for child patients or neonates and will be allowed to visit.
“Discretion” will also be given for those approaching “End of Life“.
