BBC Scotland asleep as hospital-acquired Covid infections fall for 7th week in a row

Reporting Scotland health correspondent uses misleading graph to obscure  lower death rate in Scotland – Talking-up Scotland 2021

BBC Scotland Correspondent for Bad News Only about Health, Lisa Summers, has been unavailable to tell us about the steady fall in nosocomial infections. Sources tell us she ‘can’t be arsed.’

Figure 1: Epidemic curve of COVID-19 cases with first positive specimen taken during an inpatient stay, by onset status: week-ending 1 March 2020 to week-ending 7 March 2021 (n=14,878).

In the week ending 7th March, only 18 people caught Covid-19 in hospital, down from 83 in the week ending 20th January 2021.

An NHS England spokesperson said it was more than her job was worth to tell us what the figures are there.

  1. Scary re England then, brrrr especially with the lifting of lockdown and pubs, gyms, swimming pools etc due to open soon…Scotland please enforce quarentine and close your border pronto unless people have vaccine passport and also quarentine as a precaution. The devil may care throw caution to the wind tactics of the English Government, is too dangerous to accept as another consequence of the so called union.

      Re EHNS staff and scared off from talking
      Reminiscences me of Nazi Germany
      Which in its dying days were fatal to those who spoke the awful truth that was befalling Germany
      A few casual wrong words and you struck up from a lamppost with a traitors sign hung around your neck
      England does NOT realise that they are shooting down the slide into the pits of hell
      Wake Up England because you ain’t gonna like the sudden bump as you awake upon impact of your current highly dangerous slide into the Abyss
      Many will think i aff ma heid
      But a good few highly respected academic historians are now saying
      England on the cusp of meltdown and
      A distinct possibility of a 2nd Civil War
      Read the real history of Cromwell he would pass muster as a SS Commandant
      What he done In Ireland alone would have gained him a Iron Cross 1st Class with Oak Leaves
      Everytime i pass by Cromwell St
      I have the Window down ( even whilst in a Taxi ) I gather my spit and eject with full force
      Along with a Nazi salute when possible
      And comment rip that F**cking sign off the wall
      Ditto for Cumberland St
      And as to who are truly mad
      Tis not I
      But those who approved such signage of Street Names
      Try erecting a Cromwell sign in Dublin
      And see how long it stays up

  2. My wife has to go for a scan in hospital.Before she attends she has an appointment for a covid test at an nhs only drive through site and until the appointment she must isolate.She receives her result the day after the test and if positive then appointment would be cancelled.Basically we make sure people do not attend hospitals if they are infected.
    I wonder if the system the same down south.
