The daughter of a woman who died this week from coronavirus and whose father is seriously ill in hospital with the virus said the family's grief and heartache is being compounded by Covid deniers.

Patricia Page had the unenviable task on Sunday of telling her father Charlie (78) at his bedside in Londonderry's Altnagelvin Hospital, that his beloved wife, Eileen (73), of 53 years had passed away in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in the same hospital.

Two days later, Mr Page's condition deteriorated so badly, he too was transferred to the same unit where he remains.
