COVID-19 (Coronavirus) UPDATE

The latest information

During the ongoing current situation and the Government’s/scientists instructions to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus), the very difficult decision was taken to temporarily reduce our high standard of operations. This is to reduce movement of staff, both site and office based to protect not only our own staff and their families, but also our clients and the wider community.

Our office team continue to work remotely from their homes.

As part of this temporary suspension, all site-based non-essential installation works have ceased with immediate effect until the 5th May 2020, this will be reviewed again when we are closer to a normal operation of our services.

Note: Exceptions have been considered for those sites deemed critical; for example for medical, pharmaceutical, food production, process and emergency services etc where urgent works may be required to maintain service in these difficult times.

We still continue to operate our service and maintenance SFG-30 operations to provide a service to our clients, the contact details for this will remain the same.

If you require any assistance or further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Hawkes team in these desperate times we all face.

These are the latest figures from the government website

Number of cases and deaths

As of 9am on 13 April, 367,667 tests have concluded, with 14,506 tests carried out on 12 April.

290,720 people have been tested, of whom 88,621 tested positive.

As of 5pm on 12 April, of those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 11,329 have died.

Tests People tested Positive Deaths
Daily 14,506 10,745 4,342 717
Total 367,667 290,720 88,621 11,329

Some individuals are tested more than once for clinical reasons. The figure for the number of tests excludes data from Northern Ireland. Daily totals reflect actual figures reported today.

Serology results for samples tested on 12 April will not be authorised until 14 April due to the Bank Holiday. Combined activity figures for 12 and 13 April will be reported on 14 April. For serology testing, some protocols allow for samples to be tested repeatedly. Samples are anonymised prior to sending to the lab for testing, therefore the identification of individuals tested is not possible in the current reporting process.

From all of the Hawkes team we urge you to stay home and keep safe, we will get through this.
