Scotland’s hospitals’ impressive and heroic efforts in holding back coronavirus mortality

Scotland’s Hospital’s making a massive effort in saving lives…

Talking-up Scotland

As of today, NHS Scotland has 6 fatalities in 322 cases hospitalised. This rate of 18.6 per 1 000 compares with the tragic Italian rate of 83 per 1000. The overall UK figure is now 144 fatalities in 3 269 hospitalised cases or 44 per 1 000.

I know some readers are uncomfortable with this reporting but it remains important to tell the truth in the interests of the morale in NHS Scotland which has so often been unfairly damaged by media distortions and scare stories based on far smaller sets of data, often individual patients, than we see here.

In no way, does this blame the staff in NHS England. I’d have thought it was obvious where that lies and acceptable that I cast it.
