Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said that cases of Covid Infection and death reported from the hospital are ‘one of the silent scandals of this epidemic’. He said that many of them could have been saved.
Official NHS data shows that around 9,000 UK patients who were undergoing treatment for other diseases died after being exposed to Covid in hospital wards. Official figures from the NHS Trust in England show that 32,307 people have possibly or definitely succumbed to the disease while in hospital since March 2020, and 8,747 of them have died.
University Hospitals Birmingham recorded the highest number of 408 deaths. Nottingham University Hospitals (279) and Frimley in Surrey (259) came in second place. The victims were hit by corona in hospitals for several reasons. Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said that the cases and deaths of covid infections reported from the hospital are ‘one of the silent scandals of this epidemic’. He said that many of them could have been saved.
Death figure of two types of patients
NHS officials said that the lack of testing and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) at the onset of the epidemic made it difficult to stop the virus from spreading. NHS England has published a number of corona-infected infections from the hospital since August but has not regularly revealed deaths.
The new figures include all those people who died within 28 days of being found to be COVID positive. It is not mentioned in the figures whether a person died directly from COVID or for some other reason. Death data indicates two types of patients. Covid-positive cases within eight to 14 days of hospitalization – ‘probable cases’ and positive cases after being admitted for 15 days or more – ‘clear cases’.
Patients without symptoms become the cause of infection
The spread of the virus in wards throughout the crisis has been a problem for the NHS, hospitals that have more infected patients find it difficult to manage. Although hospital staff are wearing PPE kits all the time and even in hospitals, COVID and non-COVID patients are isolated and kept in isolation, the virus is still spread among patients with no symptoms or who have the ‘COVID test’ as the ‘wrong’ form. Comes from negative.
