Pressure is easing on staff who have been battling for the past year now.

The number of Covid-19 patients has hit three-month low at the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

From the days when the UHCW peaked at treating a huge 262 patients with coronavirus on January 19, the numbers have dramatically dropped.

So much so that the number of beds occupied by Covid-19 patients has now hit a three-month low.

Latest figures on the Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire dashboard for March 9 show there were 77 beds occupied by Covid-19 patients.

It has not been this low since December 3, when it was at 71.

A grand total of 2,538 Covid-19 patients have been treated at UHCW since the start of the pandemic.

It is not just UHCW which has hit a three-month low, so has George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton.

At its peak there were 87 patients being treated on New Year’s Eve 2020.

But now, as of March 9, there were 22 beds occupied by Covid-19 patients.

Since the start of the pandemic there have been 1,222 patients treated for coronavirus at George Eliot Hospital.

While the picture has dramatically improved, both hospitals still need people to stick to Covid-19 restrictions to ensure that there is no spike in admissions again.
