Hospital-Acquired COVID-19 The New Epidemic



I has often been said that hospitals are not for healthy people, and now, new data show it may even be risky for sick people, because you can go there with one illness and come out with another.


That’s exactly what has happened in England in relation to the coronavirus pandemic, whereby up to 20% of patients with the coronavirus in several hospitals were found to have caught it while being treated by hospital staff for other illnesses, NHS England has revealed.


The data which it has just released show that the remaining 80% of patients with the virus in hospitals caught it from other infected patients.


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reportedly said hospital-acquired COVID-19 is causing an “epidemic” of deaths.
