Covid-19 update (11 February)

Our weekly Covid-19 update at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH).

At the time of writing, we are caring for 100 COVID-19 positive patients. That is 80 at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, 18 at Bassetlaw and just two at Montagu Hospital. The age range of these individuals is between 24 and 94, and seven require critical care.

Our numbers remain stable and consistent, and we have reported prolonged periods where our inpatient numbers have dipped below 100. However, we do know how quickly things can change, so please keep up the good work, and continue to observe hands, face and space.

As a Trust, a significant majority of our front-line workers have received the COVID-19 jab, while our vaccination programmes in Doncaster and Bassetlaw continue to march swiftly towards their targets, inoculating the most vulnerable.

Stay positive and stay strong, and hopefully we will see more cause for optimism as we near spring.
