THE survival rate of intensive care patients is improving, new data shows.
A new report from The Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre (ICNARC), which looks at patients admitted to the ICU in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, show that coronavirus patients have a better survival rate now than when the pandemic first began.
The report shows that the number of patients who died after being in intensive care fell by almost a quarter since the peak of the pandemic. Furthermore, the data shows that while 39 per cent of critical care patients died before the end of August, this figure fell to less than 12 per cent since September.
However, experts warn that the next few weeks are critical.
Boris Johnson said: “Without action, there is no doubt that our NHS would soon be struggling to treat the sheer number of people seriously ill with Covid.”
Latest figures from the Office for National Statistics estimate around 27,900 new coronavirus cases a day in England.
