I know this is going to scare some people but I think it's worth knowing all the facts at the moment, especially if you're living in London and have elderly relatives.

EDIT: the incident level has returned to normal now. See here:

Northwick Park hospital - The hospital is run by London North West University Healthcare Trust, which has reported six deaths related to coronavirus, all at Northwick Park.

A senior director at another London acute trust told HSJ: “Given we’re in the low foothills of this virus, this is f***ing petrifying.

Bit worrying if the NHS is up to the job, delaying it will help, but its creaking at the seams

A ‘critical incident’ that had been declared at Northwick Park Hospital following a surge in coronavirus patients has been stood down after lasting for 24 hours, the hospital confirmed.

Elderly relatives (that are frail or in poor health) are a valid concern, but people need to remember that whenever any details of a fatality are given it always seems to be the case that there was an underlying health problem. So the walking well don't have to worry about themselves. Well, short of being stabbed or having a piano dropped on you.

Thanks for that. Do you have info about why the incident level had changed now e.g. patients moved to a different hospital?

Yes, either moved to another hosp or people got better (or sadly died).
