Nottingham Hospitals update as over 400 Covid admissions and 25 deaths in one week

Amanda Sullivan, accountable officer for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG gave this update at today’s Covid Media Briefing.

Amanda Sullivan said:

‘Our hospitals are under increasing pressure – this is caused by Covid and increased absences, as well as other areas like the expected Winter pressures.

‘On 4 January 2022 we had 443 patients in hospital with Covid – this is higher than both the April and November 2020 peaks, and about the same as January 2021 – and the numbers continue to increase.

‘In the week to 2 January 2022 there 362 admissions ( up from 213 the previous week ) were 25 deaths with Covid in our hospitals.’

‘This is still a very serious situation.
