Bosses at Royal Stoke University Hospital say a coronavirus patient is being ‘treated in isolation’ so there is no risk to the public.
University Hospitals of North Midlands (UHNM) confirmed all of the hospital services remain open as normal.
A spokesman said: “We are currently treating a patient as part of the national response to coronavirus (COVID-19).
“The Royal Stoke University Hospital is one of a small number of hospitals supporting specialist centres in England that treat people with very infectious diseases.
“Patients are treated in isolation, so there is no risk to any other patients or visitors.
“All of our services remain open as usual, so if you have a hospital appointment please attend as planned.”
