Returning to Reporting Scotland’s one anonymous woman’s campaign to make sure you’re not thinking things are better here, it’s worth looking at her claims that: ‘some patients were now contracting coronavirus in hospital‘ and later ‘last year they were fine but with this new strain they are just not practical.‘
Well, of course they are. They have been since the beginning of the outbreak. Face masks were never expected to stop the aerosols carrying the virus. Some hospital-acquired infection is inevitable. See this:
One, if the new strain is making the same masks not practical, why have hospital acquired infections flatlined at around 2% of all cases though overall admissions have almost doubled?
Two, for context, hospital acquired infections in English hospitals are running at between 18% and 25%!
It’s not just shoddy journalism. It’s far worse than that.
