NHS England have been keeping ever so quiet on the level of hospital-acquired Covid infections but the Guardian today revealed them to have been typically around 25% of the total admitted.
That’s a shocking rate. Why? Well, for one thing the rate in NHS Scotland in the same period has been dramatically lower.
In December 2020, for example, the rate in Scotland was 1.9% definite cases and 0.9% probable cases, at worst 2.8% and thus only just above one-tenth of the rate in England.
