Response to media reports - Covid Positive Patients in Intensive Care
Professor Simon Constable, Chief Executive said:
We are pleased to see that the overall number of inpatients with COVID-19 is steadily falling and the number of patients discharged rising at a correspondingly strong rate with 235 patients discharged to date. Sadly, 100 patients have died.
We continue to hold steady in our ICU with COVID-19 positive patients on the unit now less than half of our available capacity. This is our verified position at noon today (see chart)
Our advice to the general public is to continue to follow all Government guidance relating to Covid-19 which can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
