A POLICE investigation has been launched after a woman filmed in a hospital to "prove" Covid-19 is a hoax.

Dorset Police said inquiries are under way "to establish whether any offences or breaches have been committed."

A spokesman said: "We were called at 6.28pm on Sunday January 31 to reports of a woman acting suspiciously at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and filming inside. An investigation is under way."

Covid-denier Hannah Dean posted a video on Facebook after spending more than 11 minutes wandering around the hospital.

She eventually left when challenged by staff in the Emergency Department.

Her actions came just hours after she was warned by police not to attend any hospital unless she has a prior appointment, is a dependent or there is a medical emergency.

She was also told to not encourage, endorse or incite another person to breach Covid-19 restrictions.

Hannah Dean, a 30-year-old mother-of-two from Fareham, near Portsmouth, has already been fined after entering a hospital in the city.

Who is the mum-of-two who claims coronavirus doesn't exist?

She has made false claims that she is a journalist and is heard in the latest video encouraging staff to call police or security.

Following the incident a spokesman for the Royal Bournemouth Hospital described the incident as a "huge insult" to staff, patients and the families of those being treated for coronavirus.

He added: "The film of our hospital proved nothing.We would expect our hospital corridors to be clear and quiet on a Sunday evening, because we treat our patients in our wards and visitors are not allowed at this time, except in exceptional circumstances.

"We need to keep our corridors clear for infection prevention and to enable the transportation of patients if they need to be moved to another area for their care.

"Our staff are all working hard in the wards, treating their patients, there are no outpatient appointments at this time of the week."
