Some of London’s hospitals have announced themselves as ‘covid free’ after no deaths in the last two days.
11 of the capital’s 18 main NHS trusts, which includes Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and University College London Hospitals, reported no deaths of patients with Covid-19 over the weekend.
The news comes as the country returns to some sense of normality today with more shops opening and children going back to school with a hope that the worst is behind us.
There have also been no deaths reported by North Middlesex hospital since May 20, by the Whittington since May 19 and by the Hillingdon since May 13.
The analysis of NHS England figures, by Professor Carl Heneghan and Dr Jason Oke, of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford University, show that London’s death rate is declining more quickly than the rest of the country even though it was the worst hit part of the UK throughout the pandemic.
The government said yesterday there were 780 people suffering with coronavirus being treated in London hospitals, the lowest figure recorded since data was first recorded on March 20th at the start of the lockdown period.
6 people did die on Saturday in London hospitals, taking the total to 69 for the last seven days with the total number of coronavirus deaths in London hospitals is 5,947.
According to Public Health England the number of cases in the capital has risen by only 110 in the last week to 26,968.
