An outbreak of flu has forced the closure of another ward at Ninewells Hospital.
Ward 4, a general medical ward, at the Dundee hospital has been closed to new patients after NHS Tayside said “a small number of patients” have contracted influenza A.
The closure comes just days after Ward 1 was also closed due to the virus.
A spokeswoman for the health board said those patients already on the ward are being monitored and appropriate infection control and prevention measures are in place.
She added: “To help reduce the spread of infection, people are asked to avoid visiting if possible and visitors who have coughs and colds which could be flu are asked not to visit friends and relatives until they are better.
“NHS Tayside apologises for any inconvenience.”
