Confirmed cases of coronavirus

Issued: 22 September 2020  

Swansea University has been informed that 12 individuals who have been confirmed by Public Health Wales (PHW) to have tested positive for coronavirus, are students at the University.

Our immediate concerns are for the affected students and their family along with the health and wellbeing of our wider University community.

We understand that there will be anxiety about this development but can assure students, staff, visitors and the wider community that their safety is our top priority. We are working closely with the NHS and PHW who are taking the lead on the response to this development and are following the Test Trace Protect strategy.  PHW is keeping us updated as to the circumstances and any further actions.

While we recognise that there is great interest in this situation, we will not be confirming any further details about the students in the interest of patient confidentiality.

We will be monitoring the situation closely and will continue to offer updated advice on the University’s dedicated webpage.

Furthermore, all relevant public health information, including regular updates, can be found at on the Welsh Government’s website and at PHW.
