Nearly 600 coronavirus patients have been admitted to hospitals in Nottingham throughout the month as the county enters Level 3 restrictions.From October 1 to October 25, the Nottingham University Hospitals Trust (NUH) registered 584 patients who were admitted in the last 24 hours with coronavirus or who were diagnosed in hospital.

This marks a significant increase from 58 patients in September and 14 in August.

The Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust, which runs King’s Mill Hospital, had 103 confirmed Covid patients in October through 25, according to data from NHS England.

The number of people admitted to hospital with Covid-19 is 40% “above and beyond” levels seen during the first wave of the pandemic.

This is according to the Nottinghamshire director of public health, who warns that the number of new patients admitted each day is “enough to fill an entire department”.

The data, provided by the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS – which oversees Nottingham University Hospitals, Sherwood Forest Hospitals and the NHS Trusts Nottinghamshire Healthcare – was released as a stern warning ahead of the Level 3 restrictions which have now come into effect.

Data also shows that 49 people died from the virus in the three hospital trusts in the seven days leading up to October 28.

In contrast, for all of July and August, only two deaths from the virus were recorded.

As of October 27, 21 patients with Covid-19 needed a mechanical ventilation bed at NUH, which operates Queen’s Medical Center and City Hospital.

This is according to the latest data from NHS England, published in its weekly report on October 29.

Jonathan Gribbin, director of public health for Nottinghamshire County Council, urged the public to continue to book and attend appointments for other health concerns, and to follow the new measures now in place.
