'Stay sensible' plea as number of Doncaster hospital Covid patients rises
People in Doncaster have been urged to ‘stay sensible’ as coronavirus lockdown measures are eased, after the number of patients being treated in hospital for the virus rose slightly.
Bosses at Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust said in its weekly update that it was caring for 22 Covid-19 patients – an increase of three on the same time last week.
A spokesman said: “At the time of writing, we are caring for 22 patients, 19 at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, three at Bassetlaw Hospital, and, similar to last week, zero at Montagu Hospital.
“Of these individuals, three require critical care and the overall age range is between 29 and 93.
“As a community, we continue to make good progress, so please keep it up.
"As things begin to open up and lockdown eases, please remember to stay sensible and to observe hands, face and space. It has been a long and difficult winter in many regards, here's to a brighter and happier spring.”
