From the Herald today:
As many as 2,133 Scots may have contracted Covid-19 while in hospital over the course of the pandemic this year, figures show.
Ooooh! Is that a lot? Is it more than in, say, England?
I’m sorry the Herald’s award-winning investigative team didn’t think you’d be interested in that.
So, from Talking-up Scotland‘s work-experience student, Monica (16), after 30 minutes research:
- There have been 129 992 cases of Covid so far in Scotland. 2 133 is 1.64%.
- The rate of hospital-acquired Covid infections in England ranges from 17.6% to 25%, 10 to 15 times higher.
