Covid-19 update (19 February)

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

As of 6pm on Thursday evening (18 February), we are caring for 94 COVID-19 positive patients. That is 70 at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, 14 at Bassetlaw and just four at Montagu Hospital. The age range is from 18 to 97, of which 13 require critical care.

Our numbers remain stable and consistent, 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 and will begin second doses soon, 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.
