Clusters of cases of the coronavirus, where the infection is likely to be connected to a group of people, are appearing in hospitals and nursing homes.

The first broad analysis of the impact of the virus shows how it has been picked up in six hospitals around the country so far where a cluster is being investigated.

It is unclear if patients as well as health workers were involved.
