Covid-19 cases - update

A statement from the multi-agency Incident Management Team (IMT)* issued October 13.

A spokesperson for the incident management team said: "A multi-agency investigation into 216 cases of Covid-19 identified within the University of Aberdeen student population, since September 20 has now concluded. This figure includes those living in various locations, including university halls of residents, private flats and private halls elsewhere.

"The cases were made up of a number of clusters - many of which were not found to be linked to each other. Recent cases identified were not directly linked back to the initial outbreak, which the IMT was established to deal with.

"There will be ongoing communication, between the university and NHS Grampian, to monitor new cases in the student population going forward.

"There was no evidence of spread to the wider community and, working with the university, various control measures have been implemented in an effort to curb the risk of any further transmission.”

NOTE TO EDITORS:

The IMT is made up of various partners from NHS Grampian, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen City Council and Police Scotland.
