British person has died after testing positive for Lassa fever.

The UK Health Security Agency confirmed the death on Friday after revealing three people in Britain had become infected on Thursday.

A Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust spokesperson said: “We confirm the sad death of a patient at our trust, who had confirmed Lassa fever. We send our deepest condolences to their family at this difficult time.

“We will continue to support the patient’s family and our staff and are working closely with colleagues from the UK Health Security Agency to undertake a robust contact tracing exercise.”

The three cases are understood to be within the same family in the East of England and are linked to recent travel to West Africa.

On Thursday, health officials said one of the cases had recovered, while the other was receiving specialist care at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.
