    More than 70 members of staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) have tested positive for Covid-19, it has been claimed.

    Anthony Costello, a former director of the World Health Organization (WHO), tweeted that he had been sent an email detailing the outbreak at the children’s hospital in London.

    The email stated 73 out of 181 members of staff had tested positive with the illness, while another 318 were off sick due to them or members of their family showing symptoms.

    A Great Ormond Street Hospital spokesperson said: “We continue to monitor Covid-19 related staff absence carefully which currently equates to 6%of our workforce.

    "We are able to fully staff all of the services we have planned to run at this time.”

    The figures relate to a staff email sent out on 1 April.

    There are more than 4,000 members of staff who deal with more than 268,000 patient appointments every year, according to the GOSH website.
