AS the Covid-19 pandemic continues around the world and the UK sees further restrictions in place, the number of hospital-acquired cases are continuing to rise.
While lessons have been learned from the first wave, hospital staff are still not being routinely tested, and the number of patients that become ill with the Coronavirus after entering the hospital is growing, with some hospitals reporting nearly 40 per cent of new cases having been caught in the hospital. This worrying increase in cases can be seen in hospitals all over the UK.
The Sun reports that “The Commons health select committee has repeatedly called on ministers to introduce weekly testing of NHS staff”. Although currently, only a limited number of Hospitals can offer testing to staff.
An NHS spokesperson explained that “It has never been more important that everyone does what they can to reduce the risk of spreading the virus by following the Hands, Face, Space guidance.”
