475 per cent more in hospital – extreme pressure on CSK

On October 1st, there were 8 people admitted to all the hospitals in Skåne for covid-19. Now there are just as many hospitalised – at CSK alone. And all healthcare personnel use face masks when they are within one metre of a patient.
Over 20,000 corona tests were done in Skåne in week 42. Some of them were self-tests here at a drive-through station.

The increase of 475 per cent more inpatients says something about the situation today.

In 10 days, the number has almost tripled

To stop the spread of infection, Region Skåne has decided that healthcare personnel should use face masks when providing face-to-face care, that is when treating a patient closer than one metre to them.

– 10 days ago, Region Skåne had 15 inpatients with covid-19. So in 10 days, the number has almost tripled.

This is what Carl Johan Sonesson (M) wrote this on his Facebook page recently.

– If the same trend continues, the figure in another 10 days will be 120-130 admitted. This spring, the peak was 95 inpatients. Surely everyone understands that the increase needs to end NOW!

Keep your distance, wash your hands and avoid meetings with many people. It's serious now, he wrote.

Until mid-October, the increase slowed down. On October 18th, there were 45 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The day after 60. Now we are up to 95.

On the weekend, one new death was reported every day, Friday-Saturday-Sunday. Now the number of deaths is up to 290 in Skåne.
