Covid-19 update (18 December)

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

At the time of writing, our hospitals are caring for 154 patients with Covid-19. 112 of these patients are being treated at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, 34 at Bassetlaw Hospital and Montagu Hospital have eight in their care (the age range is between 29 and 100). Of these, 14 patients are being treated in ITU – we wish them the very best.

While this represents a small rise over last week, our numbers have remained fairly consistent throughout the past few weeks and long may this continue. Please continue to observe hands, face and space as we head towards the holiday period, and keep up the good work.

Thank you, keep your spirits up and we will update you all again next Thursday (Christmas Eve!), same time and same place. Everyone is doing an amazing job – let’s take it one day at a time and we’ll soon get through this.
