An Aunt Bessie’s factory worker has died just two weeks after a coronavirus outbreak was confirmed among the company’s staff.
IT is feared the woman, who worked at the factory in Hull for 21 years, died from the virus which has also left one of her colleagues seriously ill in hospital. It is also understood the woman who passed away worked at the firm’s Freightliner Road factory, where the previous cases were also discovered. Her cause of death is yet to be confirmed although it is widely believed that Covid-19 was responsible.
She has been described as “an important member” of staff by bosses who said that they have “followed and gone beyond the guidance” set out by public health bodies when confirming the earlier cases.
Confirming the news in a statement, a spokesman for Aunt Bessie’s said: “We are all saddened about the death of our colleague, and our thoughts and condolences are with her family and friends at this time. “She was an important member of our team for 21 years and we will do everything we can to support her family. As a mark of respect, today we won’t be running the shift our colleague worked on so that friends and colleagues have time to mourn and remember her.”
Covid outbreaks have been reported all over the UK in the last few months, the most ‘famous’ one being at an M&S sandwich maker food factory.
