NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said 34 patients were now exhibiting symptoms of the virus but that the deaths were in patients who had underlying medical issues. Consultant microbiologist, Dr Teresa Inkster said: "Our deepest sympathies are with the families at this time. Strict infection control measures are in place throughout the hospital and I would like to remind hospital visitors of the importance of hand hygiene when entering and leaving hospital premises."
