King’s College Hospital says the bedbug infestation on its maternity unit is under control.
As the News reported last week, staff have been forced to wear protective clothing and give advice to new mothers after the outbreak.
Bedbugs are notoriously difficult to get rid of and need specialist treatment, especially as they have developed an immunity to some chemicals which no longer kill them off.
This week, a spokesperson for the hospital trust said: “We have been carefully monitoring and treating the affected area.
“Although there has not been any evidence of bedbugs for several weeks, we continue to treat the area as a precautionary measure.
“This is in line with NHS guidance.”
