Statement from Martin Cox & Rob Bird

“Today’s report of Kent’s first case of Coronavirus in Maidstone will concern many.  Our thoughts are obviously for the patient, his or her family, work colleagues and friends.

We now know that it is highly likely that Covid-19 will have a major impact on Maidstone and the rest of Kent.  We are liaising with officers at both County and Borough level to ensure that everything is being done to get Kent prepared for any emergency.

It is clear that we must all be vigilant and follow the official advice as it is released.”
