Nottingham Hospitals full update on the Covid situation last week

The virus has not gone away, and our hospitals are still seeing people who are being admitted with Covid-19 and it is more important than ever that the public are fully vaccinated which includes dose 1 and 2 as well as the booster, if eligible.


  • We have seen 362 admissions in the seven days to 2 January, which compares to 213 in the previous 7-day period
  • We had 443 beds occupied by Covid+ patients on 4 January, this compares to 270 beds on 28 December
  • Of those 443 beds, 5% (24 beds) were mechanically ventilated and in the most critical condition
  • In the week from 30 December – 5 January there were 25 deaths, which compares to 26 the previous week
  • At Nottingham University Hospitals 73.7% of patients in the most critical care were unvaccinated on 5 January.
