More Than Half Of Hospitalized Patients Tested COVID-19 Positive Only After Being Admitted – Leaked NHS Data

According to leaked NHS data more than half of those hospitalized with Covid-19 in the UK only tested positive after admission to the hospital.

More Than Half Of Hospitalized Patients Tested COVID-19 Positive Only After Being Admitted - Leaked NHS Data

Over half of those hospitalized with Covid-19 in the UK only tested positive after admission – suggesting that “vast numbers are being classed as hospitalised by Covid when they were admitted with other ailments, with the virus picked up by routine testing,” according to The Telegraph, citing leaked government figures.

What this may mean is that statistics published daily may far overstate Covid hospitalizations – and consequently, pressures on the National Health Service (NHS).

The leaked data – covering all NHS trusts in England – show that, as of last Thursday, just 44 per cent of patients classed as being hospitalised with Covid had tested positive by the time they were admitted. 

The majority of cases were not detected until patients underwent standard Covid tests, carried out on everyone admitted to hospital for any reason. 

Overall, 56 per cent of Covid hospitalisations fell into this category, the data, seen by The Telegraph, show. 

Crucially, this group does not distinguish between those admitted because of severe illness, later found to be caused by the virus, and those in hospital for different reasons who might otherwise never have known that they had picked it up.

In June, UK health officials instructed NHS trusts to provide “a breakdown of the current stock of Covid patients” between those who were hospitalized primarily for Covid and those admitted for other reasons. Thus far, the NHS has failed to publish this now-leaked information.

Out of more than 780 hospitalizations dated last Thursday, 44% tested positive within 14 days prior to admission, while 43% tested positive within two days of admission, and 13% tested positive ‘in the days and weeks that followed’ – including those likely to have caught the virus in the hospital.

“Experts said the high number of cases being detected belatedly – at a time when PCR tests were widely available – suggested many such patients had been admitted for other reasons,” according to the report.

“This data is incredibly important, and it should be published on an ongoing basis,” said Prof Carl Heneghan, director of the Center for Evidence-Based Medicine at the University of Oxford.

“When people hear about hospitalizations with Covid, they will assume that Covid is the likely cause, but this data shows something quite different – this is about Covid being detected after tests were looking for it.”

Heneghan has urged UK officials to be more transparent with this data – including whether or not the virus was the primary cause of hospital admission.

“This needs to be fixed as a matter of urgency,” he said, adding that the currently published data could lead the public “towards false conclusions,” which exaggerate the true level of pressure on the UK medical system.

“Nearly 18 months into the Covid crisis, it is absurd that data breaking down hospital admissions still isn’t publicly available on a regular basis,” said Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 committee of Tory MPs.

“Counting all patients who test positive as Covid hospitalisations is inevitably misleading and gives a false picture of the continuing health impact of the virus.”

Greg Clark, the chairman of Commons science and technology select committee, on Monday night said he would write to Sajid Javid, the Health Secretary, asking him to publish the breakdown on a regular basis following The Telegraph’s disclosure. 

If hospitalisations from Covid are a key determinant of how concerned we should be, and how quickly restrictions should be lifted, it’s important that the data is not presented in a way that could lead to the wrong conclusions being drawn,” he said. 

“While some of these people may be being admitted due to Covid, we currently do not know how many. And for those who are not, there is a big distinction between people who are admitted because of Covid and those are in for something else but have Covid in such a mild form that it was not the cause of their hospitalisation.” 

The leaked statistics come from NHS daily situation reports, collected by all hospital trusts in England.

“It creates an impression that all these people are going into hospital with Covid, and that simply is not the case. People are worried and scared and not really understanding the true picture – that is what I find despicable,” one NHS data expert told the Telegraph.

According to projections by UK’s top modelling agency the third wave of COVID-19 spike will hospitalize and kill 60 to 70% of those people who took both the vaccine doses.

The paper suggests that the resurgence in both hospitalisations and deaths will dominated by those who have received two doses of the vaccine, comprising around 60% and 70% of the wave respectively.

  1. The PCR test is a complete joke, making all “COVID case” statistics irrelevant. I’m disappointed that is not noted in the article.

  2. Vaccines are not for what you have been told download and print out the enclosed link to a Research Article with 19 references on Covid-19 mRNA based vaccines:

    Print Out & READ 3 Pages!!

    Make a copy of the link and pass it around anywhere you can.

    If anyone wants to beat Covid dead, easily and it won’t cost you anything, go to my Twitter Blog RichardNoakes19 and follow my cure there in Secular Heretic, which I have saved and posted there and copy and past my cure into your PC and follow it to the letter – 26,5 years never ill and I never get viruses for very long.

    I tire from the sport of debasing and abusing me, so do as I say or not, but on your head be it – 26.5 years never ill and never from viruses for very long

  3. Thanks for help.Why still use pedoperv s.nist owners twatsite,its an oppressor?!Many options available.Stop helping the murderers.

  4. Exactly!!pcr process amplifies parts of genetic material which may very well be material from common cold,flu,or flulike illnesd.Viral vestiges/artifacts are also creating covd+,but Since covd Virus has Never been properly isolated according to Workdwide ACCEPTED STANDARD OF KOCHS POSTULATES,WHAT ARE WE TESTING FOR,HUMANITY???Who has been making $$$$$ off this….Blackrock evil hedgefund,big hospitals gobbling up smaller ones,telehealth co.s and investors,Congress/Senate,bigbiz as smaller ones close,Bigfake charities which are screens for $laundering,data tracking,and,big Pharmacies such as W.greens,China manufacturers of both medsupplies and consumer goods as we are forced to order their new crap rather than going smallscale local or thriftstores/garagesale/fleamarkets/resale does good job of further detailing this Great Taking Scam!!Peace! 🙂
