TOTAL NUMBER OF COVID-19 HOSPITAL DISCHARGES NOW SITS AT 58

Published at:

More people have recovered from COVID-19 on the Isle of Wight, according to the latest figures released by St Mary’s Hospital.

The Isle of Wight NHS Trust says that by the end of June, 58 people who had a confirmed case of the virus were discharged from St Mary’s Hospital.

This means the patients have regained enough of their health to no longer need hospital treatment as part of their recovery.

In total, 39 people have died from the virus in the hospital since the pandemic began.

The figures also show that only 4 people were being treated in hospital for COVID-19 by 30th June.

Speaking at a meeting of the Isle of Wight NHS Trust Board this week, chief executive Maggie Oldham said:

“I want to continue to convey to all of our staff, on our behalf, our continued thanks for the way they have gone above and beyond. Many people are working in very difficult situations and circumstances throughout this Covid period.

“I think as we are coming out of lockdown, life seems to be returning to normal but for many members of our staff it isn’t normal still — the heavy use of personal protective equipment and for many staff who are required to work from home I know that life feels far from normal.”

Before we get into debates about Covid19 can any one out there please tell me on the whereabouts of the seasonal flu that unfortunately kills thousands of people. I’ve asked one of the top pharmacists on the IOW , a very experienced nurse, a retired doctor and they all are not sure. Is this covid19 a mutated flu virus that at this moment we have no seasonal flu jab for. How many of the covid19 deaths were actually the new flu but put down on the death certificates as covid19. Please someone enlighten me if they have a genuine answer.

You will never get your answers…. What you can get is a ‘normalised’ death figures monthly/annually. If you take November to March, then statistically a fair number of these will be flu related. That’s about a close as you will get to your questions.

Covid is being put on death certificate if you so much of coughed before you died so then the doctor doesn’t have to come out of their hidey hole. Lot’s of deaths being put down to it when they are not ! Everywhere open now or opening in next 2 weeks except doctor’s surgeries. You can’t get treatments like having ears syringed they tell you can pay £65 at Boots and Specsavers and they’ll do it. Then they want us to clap for them, it’s people who work in supermarkets and bus drivers etc who never stopped working throughout with… Read more »

What about the 2 new cases that were first heard of on the grapevine at St Mary’s, on Monday 6th July. Why are they not reported?
