Up-to-date figures on hospital onset Covid infections outside of Scotland are difficult to find.
The most recent data we have are from the Nuffield Trust in November 2020 (above) revealing that, by the 14th, 19% of all Covid cases in English hospitals had been acquired after admission.
In the same period, week-ending 18th November 2020, in Scotland, only 1.2% of all cases were definite hospital onset and 0.8% were probable.
The hospital-onset infection rate in English hospitals was thus nearly ten times higher – frightening.
By week-ending 17th February 2021, in Scotland, 2.5% were definite hospital onset and 0.9% were probable:
Let’s hope the rate in England has not got much worse with increasing admissions though the logic is that it will have.
Scotland’s MSM are, of course, blind to this kind of comparison when it favours Scotland. Remember their lust for slow vaccination rates and high drug deaths.
