Preparing for a Covid Winter

7th October 2020

A month ago, patients being admitted to hospital with Covid-19 hit a reassuringly low daily average of below 100. As we have seen though, this was perhaps the lull before the new storm of rising coronavirus cases and hospital admissions. The daily average of admissions has now risen to over 500, and whilst this is nowhere near the peak we saw in April/May, it is showing a worrying trend1. As the Government’s Chief Medical Officer, Chris Whitty, pointed out;

We’re now going into the seasons late autumn and winter which benefit respiratory viruses, and it is very likely they will benefit Covid as they do for example flu. 2

Protecting our C3 Stakeholders

Select Medical, along with the rest of the nation, were unprepared for the pandemic that swept the world. However, we have learnt from the events that unfolded and have prepared for what we believe may be a very difficult winter period for our C3 stakeholders. During the height of the pandemic, we saw a huge increase in demand for hospital beds and mattresses, so in keeping with our C3 guarantee, we’ve gone the extra mile in preparation for supporting dedicated care providers during these nervous next 6 months.
