Chris Chope Seeks Clarity from the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care on Hospital Covid Infection Count
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether the published figures for people admitted to hospital with covid-19 include those who have been admitted for another condition but have also tested positive for covid-19, even if not showing any symptoms; and if he will make a statement.
The National Health Service publishes weekly reports by Trust on the number of hospitalised patients with COVID-19; the number of patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 and the number of patients diagnosed in hospital with COVID-19. This includes those who have been admitted to hospital for another condition and is available at the following link:
