Covid-19 update (5 February)

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

At the time of writing 96 patients are staying with us who have tested positive for COVID-19. The breakdown of this is 72 at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, 21 at Bassetlaw and three at Montagu Hospital. The age range is between 38 and 94.

Of these patients, 11 require intensive care – and we wish them the very best.

This week we have registered 24 hour periods where our inpatient numbers have dipped below 100, and long may this continue. Keep up the good work, stay safe and stay strong, and most importantly, remember hands, face and space
