London Covid: The hospitals in the capital hit by the most coronavirus deaths in November – My London

https://www.mylondon.news/news/health/london-covid-hospitals-capital-hit-19286804

Deaths from coronavirus in England continue to rise despite the country entering a second lockdown at the beginning of the month.

Although worrying, there is often a two to three week lag before an infection can cause a death, so even though the lockdown began on November 5, deaths are unlikely to see a significant drop until the end of November.

London still remains relatively protected from the worst death rates in England with only 173 hospital deaths during November so far.

In comparison the North East and Yorkshire have seen 726 deaths in its hospitals, a stark insight into the severity of the disease.

The infection rate continues to rise in the capital. Data from the Mayor of London’s office say the infection rate now stands at 174 cases per 100,000 population (November 4 to November 10) against a rate of 151 for the previous week.

Data analysed by MyLondon from figures provided by NHS England reveal that Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs King George Hospital in Goodmayes and Queen’s Hospital in Romford, has seen the highest deaths in November in London with 67 so far.

This is followed by Barts Health NHS Trust which has seen 24 deaths.

Deaths of patients are registered for those people who have died in hospitals and had tested positive for Covid-19 at time of death

It is however important to remember that some hospitals may have admitted more people with coronavirus because they have better resources to deal with those patients.

Some NHS trusts also have multiple hospitals under their care so they again they treat more people, which subsequently can lead to more deaths.
