St Mary's Hospital Isle of Wight Day Sunny

5 MORE COVID-19 HOSPITAL DEATHS RECORDED AT ST MARY’S

Published at:

Another 5 people have died at St Mary’s Hospital after testing positive for COVID-19, taking the Island’s pandemic total to 151.

To date, 97 Islanders have passed away in hospital – a number that is continuing to grow day by day as the NHS comes under increasing pressure. 41 people have died at St Mary’s this month alone.

Of the 151 Islanders that have died after testing positive for COVID-19 within the previous 28 days, 54 have died outside of the hospital environment.

The Government believe that the country is now past the peak of the latest wave with cases falling day by day, but the impact on hospitalisations is still being seen and is not expected to be truly known for another week.

The COVID-19 vaccination programme has seen millions of people receiving their first dose – a number that is expected to rise to in excess of 5 million later on today. It’s unknown how many people have been vaccinated on the Isle of Wight, although it is estimated to be around 20,000.

Anyone will be fortunate indeed not to catch this now. This new variant seems so easy to transmit, and as for many of us the vaccines is months away, a long worrying Spring to come.

Good luck all.

Even the mainstream media don’t care anymore, they all sound like they have had enough and they are the ones trolling the public. No one listens or believes the clear lies anymore. Except island echo readers it seems..

Of course I am sorry for those who have lost a loved one, but the fact is NO ONE has lost a loved one due to this virus.

Perhaps but you would be up in arms if people were dieing as a result of having a haircut and no one was saying anything wouldn’t you. There would be cries of a cover up. Your logic here is as flawed as you intelligence.

It is no more stupid than the minority of idiots who believe the media.

Pot calling the kettle black Richard, you are clearly so obsessed with the inaccuracy of the media you reject everything from all sources other than your own experience, or from equally wrong thinking people who are gullible to conspiracy theories. Are you going to take your vaccine when offered? Probably not given your views. Stop spreading your opinion and insulting others who don’t share your warped world view please.

Yes vaccine centres are here, unfortunately people like dave are making false news and creating a huge problem with rolling the vaccine out.
If 1000 jabs available tommorow, comments above about freckles deaths blah blah blah so only 400 might turn up.
I had bcg Jab at school, don’t remember a government conspiracy to brain wash me, chip me, change my dna, but that was all OK back then.

My daughter in law works front line phoning up and offering the vaccine out, if people do not turn up they then phone someone else to come in that day so nothing gets wasted.

Why the discrepancy in deaths when the other sites say much less. Scaremongering by any chance?
