Major Incident Declared by North West Ambulance Service Due to High Levels of 999 Calls.
The service that has declared the emergency covers one of the regions of England worst-hit by coronavirus which spans the Greater Manchester area. “We’ve declared a major incident due to the high level of calls,” a statement said on Monday night. “If your call is not life-threatening, you may be asked to seek an alternative source of care or make your way to hospital.”
The service said it had declared a major incident due to an exceptionally high
volume of 999 emergency calls, especially in the Greater Manchester area. “We are trying our best to reach patients as soon as we possibly can,” North West Ambulance Service said. The service called on people not to call for an ambulance unless their condition was life-threatening.
It is not yet known if the reasons are due to an influx of calls from people worried they may have contracted coronavirus but speculation from users on social media points that way. More to follow as and when more information becomes available.
