COVID-19 update (6 May)

At the time of writing, we are caring for six patients who have tested positive for COVID-19.

At the time of writing, we have six COVID-19 positive patients with us. That is just five at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and one at Bassetlaw Hospital. These are the lowest figures we have seen since early September – a huge achievement.

The age of those within our care is between 43 and 87, and two require critical care. We wish them all the very best and hope for a speedy recovery.

A few things to note – while things continue to improve, remember to observe hands, face and space, and any other guidance where you are. And if you’re called to get your vaccine, please put your arm forward – the vast majority of our colleagues are now vaccinated, and we believe this will help us to reclaim the summer, and return to some level of normality in the not too distant future.
