70% of hospital patients with Covid-19 unvaccinated

Thu, 05 Aug 2021

70% of people being treated with coronavirus at Noble's Hospital had not been vaccinated.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle revealed the hospital admission during a coronavirus briefing today.

Mr Quayle said: "I think it is also helpful to clarify that out of the 16 admissions, 7 were actually admitted for another 7 reason, not knowing they were positive until they were admitted. Whilst everyone in hospital with COVID is a concern to us, we must recognise that not all admissions have the same level of care requirements – some may not require any additional COVID care plans, they are simply there for other reasons."

"Most importantly, of the sixteen people currently in Noble’s Hospital with COVID-19, 10 are aged under 80 and 7 of these patients are unvaccinated. That is a really important figure – 70% of current patients aged under 80 are not vaccinated."
