35 DIE IN HOSPITAL FROM COVID-19 ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT FIGURES CONFIRM

Published at:

 35 Islanders have now sadly died with COVID-19 at St Mary’s Hospital, according to the latest figures released by NHS England this afternoon (Friday).

The first coronavirus death on the Isle of Wight was recorded on 22nd March and within 2 weeks that number had risen to 5. On 19th April, 4 weeks after the first death, a total of 16 people had sadly died in St Mary’s Hospital. In the 2 weeks that followed, the total number of fatalities climbed from 16 to 29, but since the start of May that number has increased by just 6 from 29 to 35.

A levelling of COVID-19 hospital deaths is clear, which is positive news in the fight against coronavirus. This is despite the number of confirmed cases climbing t0 181, which now includes those tested at home and at the testing facility in Newport.

Across the Island, a total of 57 people have now died from COVID-19. ONS figures show that 22 people have died outside of the hospital environment.

As of 21st May, 181 confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been recorded on the Isle of Wight. This number remains fairly low in comparison to other areas, even after the launch of a testing facility at Medina Leisure Centre car park and home swabbing through the NHSX app.

35 Islanders have now sadly died with COVID-19

with covid – that doesn’t indicate that they died because of covid – could just mean it is in the blood and they died of something completely unrelated.

then article states …. 57 people have died from covid – which is it… of or with – it is a massive difference.

the article was read properly you arrogant arse.

It clearly states with covid for the 35 not from. It then goes onto state 57 died from covid – either the 35 died with covid or from it, there is a huge difference

perhaps you need to engage brain before keyboard.

“Not disclosed” – I personally think it’s irrelevant. These people had covid and died. Regardless of whether they had underlying health conditions or not. It’s completely irrelevant whether “with” or “from”. It’s clear from logic that it means, if they’re frail, have underlying conditions or, nothing at all…. and covid is listed on the death certificate, that covid has played a part in their death.
If no health conditions, clearly it is likely that covid killed these people.
If they had underlying health conditions, covid finished these unfortunate people off. So either way, it makes no odds. You know what it means so why make a pointless comment?

They all died with Covid. Nobody dies ‘from’ Covid. Covid causes other issues and organs fail, causing death. Whether there was an underlying issue is irrelevant as those issues were being treated effectively and efficiently before Covid stuck the boot in. Even in an otherwise healthy person, their lungs might fail and technically they would have died of lung failure. But Covid is the cause of the lung failure. Without contracting C19, all would still be alive. There is not a huge difference – there is no difference.

It’s pretty ovbious it’s just a wording error, stop trying to pick at everything, go for a walk and give it a rest. Your clearly getting wound up so maybe follow a different news reporting site. If you wanna pretend this virus isnt the thing killing people then carry on as normal.
