It’s not all bad news though… it’s been said that there are currently no patients being treated for COVID-19 at St Mary’s Hospital, despite the recent spike in cases. This is positive news for the Island as it means the 13 recent cases are mild and do not require hospitalisation.

Andy, often, only upbeat posts are allowed. This site is too censored on opinions all to often. Can understand swearing, bullying etc, but opinions are just that and all should be heard, otherwise we get, as you have, a false impression of what the population really think.

Not in hospital, that only means one thing they are out and about spreading it around, when they should be isolating at home


Maybe they preferred their local hospital.


Yes because they are so ill that they haven’t even noticed because it’s that “bad”


Ow no people are enjoying them selfs before winter


The 13 recent cases if you read this are mild and do not require hospitisation. If they were required to isolate they would have been advised before going home.


Now we have 449. Up 3 since yesterday.


If there is no one being treated in hospital with Covid 19 why is it now said that someone has just died at St Mary’s of the virus ?


Doesn’t say they died of the virus it says Covid related which probably means they died of something unrelated but had Covid too which is one of the reasons the government had to change their figures as they classed them all as deaths from Covid even if it wasn’t Covid that caused death.


Article didn’t say when they died. Likely to have happened a while back but only just reported due to post-mortem delays.

Well, they really are pushing for this second lock down. I said back in June that the second lockdown will be Xmas, think more people are waking up, so it’s going to be soon. Just saying.
